Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) appeals
Appeals can be made against several aspects of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) collection and enforcement system, from the calculation of the amount due to any enforcement actions the council may take. For a detailed explanation of the appeals procedure and links to relevant web sites please see the appeals section from this link to our Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) page.

You can make an appeal if the council fails to reach a decision on your application within eight weeks. You can also appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against a decision to refuse a planning application or against any conditions that are attached to a planning permission.
There are three forms of appeal:
Written statements are submitted to the Inspector by the council and the appellant. Each party has the opportunity to comment on the other's statement and will usually accompany the Inspector on a site visit. This is usually the quickest appeal procedure.
Designed to create an informal atmosphere, allowing 'round the table' discussion, chaired by an Inspector, and is applicable where issues are fairly straightforward.
A public enquiry
Led by an Inspector, who will consider evidence and subsequent cross examination made by the council and the appellant (or agents for the parties).
You must appeal within six months of a planning decision (12 weeks from the date of decision under the Householder Appeals Service). Your appeal will usually be determined by an Inspector appointed by the First Secretary of State and the time taken will vary depending on the complexity of the case. The appeal decision can only be challenged on a point of law of if it is felt that the requirements of the Planning Acts or Rules of Procedures have not been carried out. Such a challenge is made through the High Court or by judicial review and legal advice will be necessary.
