Community Infrastucture Levy (CIL) Appeal Decision

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) has made available a CIL appeal decision. In making the decision available, the VOA believes that useful lessons about CIL regulations and appeals can be shared. Publication will also allow any precedents to be understood more widely.

In this case as the existing building was demolished prior to the grant of planning permission for the chargeable development it could not qualify as a “relevant building” under regulation 40(11) of the CIL Regulations 2010. In addition, as the chargeable authority had not made exceptional circumstances relief available in its area under regulation 55, it was not possible for it to grant any such claims.

More information is available on the government website.
