What exemptions are there from paying the levy?
There are three main types of relief from the levy:
charitable relief – a mandatory exemption for a charity if it owns part of the land, and the
development will be used wholly or mainly for charitable purposes
social housing relief – a mandatory exemption for social housing
exceptional circumstances – charging authorities have the option to offer relief in cases where the levy would
have an unacceptable impact upon the economic viability of a development.
