Newark & Sherwood Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
Determining whether a Development may be CIL Liable
Your development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy if it involves
new build floor area. If your scheme is liable, this charge is payable after development begins. Details
of the Newark & Sherwood Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule may be found here:
Your answers to the questions on this form will enable the Council to establish whether or not your
development is liable for a charge, and if so to calculate it accurately from the floor areas you
provide. Misleading or inaccurate answers may result in a CIL charge that is higher than it needs to
be and in some cases additional surcharges may be imposed. Further information regarding the levy
