Community infrastructure levy commencement notice
Section 8 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 requires that, for chargeable developments, the persons liable to pay the community infrastructure levy must submit a notice to the collecting authority setting out when development is going to start. This is referred to as a ‘commencement notice’.
The collecting authority must receive the commencement notice at least one day before development is due to commence. Otherwise, the parties may be liable for a surcharge and may not be permitted to pay by instalments.
- Be submitted in writing on a form published by the Secretary of State (or a form to substantially the same effect).
- Identify the liability notice issued in respect of the chargeable development.
- State the intended commencement date of the chargeable development.
- Include the other particulars specified or referred to in the form.
If a collecting authority knows development has commenced, but has not received a commencement notice, or has received a notice, but considers that the development began earlier, it may determine when the development commenced. This is known as the 'deemed commencement date'.
