Liable Development and Charging Schedule

Stroud District Council have created a charging schedule in line with government regulations to show which applications will be liable to pay Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

Development liable for CIL

  • You are creating a new dwelling (of any size)
  • You are increasing the floor area by 100m² or more
  • You are converting a building that is not in use
  • You are creating a supermarket or retail warehouse or extending an existing premises by 100m² or more

For a more detailed list of liable applications, developments which are not considered CIL liable and those covered by exemption or relief please click here.

Charging Rates

The table below shows the current CIL rates by type of development as of 1st April 2017:

Type of Development

CIL Rates £/m²

New additional floorspace (Gross Internal Area)



Strategic sites identified in the Local Plan


Residential sites within the Stroud Valleys area*


Supermarkets and Retail Warehouses


*Because of issues of viability, residential proposals on land within the Stroud Valleys charging zone (brownfield sites within the boundaries of the Industrial Heritage Conservation Area) are exempt. Applications for supermarkets and retail warehouses in this area will still be liable.

To check if your residential development falls within the exemption area, please check on our interactive map (the CIL exemption area is outlined in blue).

The large housing sites allocated in the Local Plan (Policies SA1-SA5a) are also exempt from CIL, because of the costs associated with the provision of on-site infrastructure. This is on the basis that developers are required to meet their own site infrastructure costs and these are as set out in the CIL Viability Study.

For more information on how the levy is calculated please read our guidance notes.
