CIL and infrastructure

We offer specialist knowledge of the CIL and infrastructure planning, developed through working closely with MHCLG and a wide range of local authorities. 

Now we've seen the Government's respose to the CIL review, it is clear that the CIL is here to stay.  In essence, the broad form of the CIL will continue, but with some streamlining.  So if you do not yet have a charging schedule in place, we can help you get there. 

Our associates have strong knowledge of development viability and the practicalities of developing a robust CIL charging schedule, alongside effective ongoing use of S106.  We can help you in developing the charging schedule and setting up the machinery to collect and manage the CIL and negotiate S106 contributions. 

The fees for all our support can be recovered from CIL revenues.

Advisory Support

Drawing on the experience of working with a range of authorities, we can help you in setting the right approach to planning for infrastructure and the CIL, including -

  • the most suitable form for the charging schedule in your local circumstances
  • developing complementary SPG for developer S106 contributions
  • the approach to engaging consultants for viability testing
  • justifying the level of CIL at examination
  • setting up effective arrangements for collection

Learning Groups

We run three CIL and infrastructure planning learning groups: two national groups which meet in London, and a northern group which meets in Leeds

The groups enable participants from over 40 authorities to explore the practical implications around the CIL and S106



We offer highly regarded officer training on plan and project viability, and on implementing the CIL
