Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities can charge on development in their area. We collect Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and other developer contributions secured through Section 106 Agreements. We spend these contributions on the delivery of infrastructure to support housing growth. We have reported on the collection and spend since BCP Council formed in 2019, in the Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) 2019-2020, 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.

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.
