The national ability to set a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) came into force in April 2010. It allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds for a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development. This can include transport, education and potentially many other themes. The funding is levied from developers undertaking new building projects in their area.
