Given the complexity of the Community Infrastructure Levy it is important for developers who are considering applying for planning permission to adhere fully with the CIL regulations. The following links provide useful information and guidance on the CIL process:

CIL spending is now monitored through the Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS). Worthing Borough Council was required, under the CIL Regulations, to publish its first annual IFS by 31st December 2020 and at least annually thereafter. The statements are intended to show how much money has been raised and how it has been spent in the previous year. They also state what infrastructure projects will be, or may be, funded wholly or partly by CIL (replacing the Regulation 123 list). Please see:

Note: the CIL Regulations were updated on the 1st September 2019. These new regulations affect planning permissions granted from that date onwards. CIL liable developments which received planning permission before the 1st September 2019 will be processed under the previous regulations.
