7. CIL appeals, penalties and enforcement
It is important that you submit the CIL additional information form with your planning application, to ensure that your CIL liability is calculated correctly. There are sanctions against failing to submit the various other forms on time for example, the right to pay by instalments is only available where someone has assumed liability for CIL, and notice of commencement has been given to us before development starts.
If you disagree with our liability notice, you may first request a review under Section113 of the CIL Regulations. To do this, write within 28 days stating why you think the liability notice is incorrect, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org marked "Request for CIL S113 review", or by letter to the Assistant Director City Development, Civic Centre, Exeter, EX1 1NN.
If this does not resolve the issue, you may then appeal under Section 114, 115 or 116 of the CIL Regulations to the Valuation Office Agency.
It is also possible to appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against a surcharge or enforcement action taken by us taking in relation to the non-payment of CIL.
