- The Bath & North East Somerset Council Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) will be implemented from 6th April 2015 and will be payable on planning applications where the proposal creates floorspace through a new building or conversion/change of use. CIL is a new tariff system that will allow the council to raise funds from development to contribute to the costs of providing some of the infrastructure needed. An additional CIL form will need to be completed for all applications from now. For developers this means is that any applications approved after April 6th 2015 may be subject to CIL. Further information and guidance can be found on the website.
