CIL appeals

If you consider the levy set out in your Liability Notice to be incorrect you can ask the Council to review the calculation. Such a request must be made in writing within 28 days of the date on which the Liability Notice was issued. You may also submit appropriate evidence to support your request to the Council. The Council will notify you of the decision of the review within 14 days of receiving your request. However, where development is commenced before you received notification of the decision, the review will lapse and the original amount will become due for payment as set out in the Demand Notice.

If you are dissatisfied with the decision of the Council's review or you have not been notified within 14 days you may appeal to the Valuations Office Agency (VOA). You can also appeal to the VOA against the apportionment of liability.

You can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against a surcharge or if you consider a levy enforcement action to be unwarranted or taken in error.
