No. The planning application has been agreed but a Community infrastructure Levy (CIL) is payable before the building works can commence. The CIL is broken down into 2 figures CIL Liable Mayor and CIL liable Croydon. in total this is about £15000. We have heard from somebody today that if you are the owner of a property for more than 4 years and do not intend to sell after refurbishment that this fee can be waived. We would like to know if this correct.
