Bournemouth Community Infrastructure Levy

Prior to the formation of BCP Council the former Bournemouth Borough Council approved the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule which took effect on 1st March 2016.

On 1 January 2020 the RICS CIL Index, published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, will be used to calculate CIL liability in accordance with Schedule 1 of the CIL (Amendment) Regulations 2019. The table below shows how indexation will affect CIL for developments granted planning permission in the Bournemouth area from 1 January 2022.

For development type definitions and boundary of Town Centre AAP area please see the Bournemouth CIL Charging Schedule.

 The CIL Instalment Policy for the Bournemouth area sets out the number of instalments and payment period for payments.

In support of CIL charging schedules we used to set out the types of projects that CIL monies and planning obligations would be spend upon, in what were known as the Regulation 123 List. This approach was superseded through the preparation of the Infrastructure Funding Statement, which sets out the CIL and planning obligations and where they are spent. We are in the process of reviewing the Regulation 123 List to set our future spending priorities.
