How to use the CIL Calculator

Follow these simple steps to calculate your potential CIL liability:
  1. Find which CIL charging zone your site is in by selecting the CIL Zone from the dropdown menu and clicking 'Open Map'.
  2. Enter the total gross internal area to be demolished across the entire site as part of the chargeable development. To be eligible for deduction, the floorspace to be demolished must be part of an existing building which:
    • is situated on the relevant land on the day planning permission first permits the chargeable development; and
    • contains a part that has been in continuous lawful use for at least six months within the period of three years ending on the day planning permission first permits the chargeable development.
  3. Enter the proposed gross internal area for each use separately. Click 'Add Area' and:
    1. Enter the proposed floorspace for a particular land use type in the 'Proposed Floorspace' box,
    2. If there is any existing floorspace to be retained that will form part of the same proposed use being added, enter this figure in the 'Existing floorspace to be retained' box. To be eligible for deduction, the floorspace to be retained must part of an existing building which:
      • is situated on the relevant land on the day planning permission first permits the chargeable development; and
      • contains a part that has been in continuous lawful use for at least six months within the period of three years ending on the day planning permission first permits the chargeable development.
      In addition, the following floorspace to be retained will also be eligible for deduction:
      • The floorspace of retained parts of relevant buildings where the intended use following completion of the development is a use that can be carried on lawfully and permanently without further planning permission on the day before permission is granted.
    3. Using the dropdown menu, select the use/rate that applies to the proposed floorspace that is being inputted
      • The applicable use/rate should be selected. The rate for the relevant CIL charging area will be automatically selected based on the area selected at the start of the calculation.
    4. If residential floorspace is being added and the development proposes affordable housing, enter the proposed floorspace of the affordable housing. This should only be entered if it will be eligible for mandatory social housing relief. To qualify for social housing relief the affordable dwellings must meet the criteria set out in Regulation 49 of the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended).Social housing relief must be claimed by submitting a Relief Claim form to the council prior the commencement of the development.
    5. Existing floorspace to be retained for the provision of affordable housing should also be entered, if applicable. Existing floorspace to be retained for the provision of affordable housing will not be eligible for social housing relief because it has already been deducted as part of the overall existing floorspace to be retained in part b. above.
  4. Repeat steps 3 a, b and c for all uses that will be included in the proposed development. Steps 3 d and e should only be followed when entering proposed residential floorspace.
  5. Once all of the floorspace details have been entered you will be able to see a breakdown of the Stratford-on-Avon District Council CIL charges, as well as the combined totals and total floorspace details.
If the development is not eligible for social housing relief, there are other reliefs and exemptions that may apply.

In addition to social housing relief for affordable housing provision, a development may be eligible for relief or exemption from the CIL charge where it involves:
  • Development where the owner of a material interest in the relevant land is a charitable institution and the development will be used wholly (or mainly) for charitable purposes;
  • A self build annex or extension, or
  • A self build dwelling.
Relief must be claimed by submitting the relevant relief claim form prior to the commencement of the development. Further information on relief can be found below.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council do not have a policy for granting discretionary charitable relief or exceptional circumstances relief and will not accept claims made on this basis.

Further information on relief and exemption from CIL can be found on the National Planning Practice Guidance website at http://planningguidance.planningportal.gov.uk/blog/guidance/community-infrastructure-levy/relief/
