    Mezzanines and CIL - changes to Planning Practice Guidance

    The Government has revised National Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) to confirm that mezzanine floorspace, inserted into an existing building, is not liable for CIL unless the mezzanine forms part of a wider planning permission that seeks to provide other works as well.

    PPG previously included a 200sqm threshold, whereby only mezzanines over 200sqm (gross) were liable for CIL, unless the mezzanine was linked to wider works.

After all, housebuilders, retail and commercial developers alike play a significant role in shaping Local Development Plans, so why the lack of involvement in the CIL process?
