Will High Court Ruling Impact Self Builders' Cil Exemption?

I would be interested in your comments as it could prove quite costly to my potential self-build?

The self build CIL exemption has some rules you need to be aware of if not already. For example you aren't automatically exempt. You have to claim it after getting planning permission and before actually starting construction. You also have to live in the house for three years.
Self builders are also exempt from S106 contributions to affordable housing but not other S106 such as contributions towards school classrooms or the provision or maintenance of open space. Unlike the CIL an S106 has to be necessary to make the planning application acceptable in planning terms. So it should be seen as mitigating the impact of your specific project. The CIL on the other hand can collect money for all sorts of council projects such as road building miles away from your site.
