80% of total Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) receipts are allocated to be spent on strategic infrastructure to support the development of the city.
This spend is currently restricted to items referred to in the Infrastructure List contained in our published Infrastructure Funding Statement.
15% of total CIL receipts (known as the neighbourhood portion) can be spent on local priorities in and around the ward where development has taken place. Our Draft CIL Neighbourhood Portion Spend Guidance Note contains more information on this element and the bid process. The Neighbourhood CIL bid form is appended to the Guidance Note. You can download the Neighbourhood CIL bid form.
Up to 5% of total CIL receipts can be spent on administrative expenses incurred in connection with CIL and are allocated for such purposes.
