If you submit an application for a new development, extension or change of use as well as standard planning application forms you must complete and submit:
Form 1 provides us with the information to determine if you need to pay a Community Infrastructure Levy charge.
It's in your interest to provide this information so we can complete Community Infrastructure Levy calculations correctly. Particularly if there are existing buildings in use on the site. Any change to details supplied on this form (i.e. change of address, phone number, etc.) needs to be submitted before development starts using the same form.
For more guidance in completing Form 1 visit Form 1 completion guidance on the Planning Portal website.
In limited cases development not needing planning permission may still be liable to the Community Infrastructure Levy. If you intend to carry out development under the General Permitted Development Order 1995 or any other General Consent before you start development you must submit:
Unless the development is less than 100 square metres of additional floor space.
If the Community Infrastructure Levy applies to more than 1 new building a schedule listing the Gross Internal Area floor space of each building should be supplied with the form if not provided as part of the planning application.
If the amount of Community Infrastructure Levy is to be reduced due to demolition of buildings in lawful use or re-use of part of an existing building each building must be listed separately on Q7 of the form and a plan supplied to show the location of the floor space / buildings referred to.
In certain circumstances it will be possible to pay some or the entire Community Infrastructure Levy amount in the form of land. This is a discretionary policy. We are under no obligation to accept any such payment. Before submission of an application liable parties are encouraged to discuss proposals with us to establish if the principle of ‘payment in kind’ is suitable.
