The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) does not exist in Scotland and is only applicable in England and Wales.  The CIL was introduced through legislation in England and Wales in 2008 and is as a tool for use by local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area.  The Scottish Government are considering the merits of introducing an Infrastructure Levy through the current review of the Scottish planning system and further research is ongoing in this respect.
