Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities can charge on development in their area. CIL income can be used to contribute towards the funding of infrastructure needed to support new development. We record how much income we receive and where it is spent in the Infrastructure Funding Statement.

Some of the CIL income is set aside for local communities use and is known as the Neighbourhood Portion.

We are currently following the policy from the former three councils created before the formation of BCP Council. 

Advice for applicants

Planning applications and appeal decisions may be liable to pay CIL. To enable the Council to calculate CIL liability you will need to complete Form 1: CIL Additional Information when you apply for planning permission. There are also guidance notes to help you complete this form. You may be able to claim CIL relief or exemptions.
