5. Paying the Habitats Mitigation contribution
Only developments that are not liable for Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or are exempt from paying CIL will be required to pay a Habitats Mitigation contribution.
When submitting your application you will also need to provide the following documents:
- One original completed and signed s111 Undertaking to pay the mitigation
- A copy of the site location plan that accompanies the planning application
- An invoice will be issued for the contribution rate and payment can be made either by cheque or BACS if preferred.
What if my application is not approved?
If your application is not approved you can apply for the Habitats Mitigation fee to be refunded. The refund will not be made until the time for appeal has expired or an appeal has been dismissed.
