All planning applications must be accompanied by a CIL Additional Information Form. The completed form will provide sufficient information to allow us to determine whether the development is liable to pay the Mayoral Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Guidance notes are also available.
The responsibility to pay the levy runs with the ownership of the land, unless another party has assumed liability. An Assumption of CIL Liability Form should be submitted to the council with the planning application to ensure that the CIL liability notice is issued to the correct party.

The City Council formally adopted the latest version of Westminster’s City Plan (July 2016), which includes the Basements Revision and the Mixed Use Revision, on 13 July 2016. The policy relating to basements (CM 28.1 Basement Development) requires the applicant to comply with the City Council’s new Code of Construction Practice when undertaking their development in order to ensure that the environmental impact of construction works is monitored, controlled and managed.
We no longer require submission of a Construction Management Plan to validate your planning application as this will form part of the Code of Construction Practice (these details must be submitted to the Environmental Sciences Team after planning permission has been granted but at least 40 days prior to works commencing). However we do require the submission of a signed draft version of the proforma Appendix A Checklist B (from the Code of Construction Practice) at validation stage in order to indicate your intention to comply with the Code at the relevant stage. Please note, this draft version does not need to be sent to or signed by the Environmental Sciences Team at planning application stage.
