6. Can I appeal against CIL?

Requirements for lodging appeals

You must first ask the council for a review of the chargeable amount.  This must be requested within 28 days of the date of the liability notice by emailing us at

We have 14 days to issue a decision on the review.  If you still dispute the CIL liability following the review decision you can then appeal to the Valuation Office. If you have not received a decision at the end of 14 days you can submit your appeal to the Valuation Office.

Your appeal must be submitted to the Valuation Office within 60 days of the date of the liability notice.

A review/appeal cannot be requested if development has already commenced (unless permission was granted after development commenced).

Appeals relating to surcharges, commencement notices and stop notices should be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.

Full details of the processes and relevant appeal forms are available on at Guidance on CIL Appeals
