Central Government does not collect this information. Local authorities are responsible for collecting the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and must report annually on the income received and how it is spent.

This Government is committed to supporting our high streets. CIL is specifically designed to ensure it does not act as a disincentive to re-use and redevelop empty buildings. Buildings returned to their former use generally do not pay CIL. Buildings re-developed for a new use may also not be charged CIL, subject to meeting certain requirements. This includes buildings in town centre locations.
