All CIL forms are supplied by the Planning Portal but should be returned to Southend-on-Sea Borough Council. Contact the S106 & CIL Officer (Tel: 01702 215004) if you need any further information or advice after reading the CIL web pages.

The Council will issue acknowledgement letters for all CIL forms submitted. It is in the liable person’s interest to ensure that they receive all relevant acknowledgements before starting work (including demolition/site preparation). We will be able to issue acknowledgements more speedily if an email address is provided.
