The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new tariff system that allows local authorities to raise funds from developers to contribute to the costs of providing some of the infrastructure needed for new development. Rates of CIL are set out for all qualifying development in a document known as a 'CIL Draft Charging Schedule'. The Examination Page has details of the preparation of the document.
The documents associated with the approval of the Community Infrastructure Levy are as follows
- Cabinet Agenda and Draft Minutes 11th February 2015
- Full Council Meeting Agenda and Draft Minutes, 17th February 2015 (see item 126)
- B&NES CIL Charging Schedule
- Examiner’s final report, 30th January 2015
The Charging Schedule was approved by Full Council on 17th February 2015 and came into effect on 6th April 2015. The final CIL charging schedule document is available via this link.
The Examiner’s final report into the Bath and North East Somerset Council Draft Charging Schedule was received on 30th January 2015. The examiner recommended approval of the CIL Charging Schedule, with modifications. A report to the Full Council Meeting set out the changes made as a result of the Examiner’s Recommenations. The Report to the Full Council is available via this link.
Following the implementation of CIL, CIL replaces the Planning Obligations or Section 106 contributions for many forms of infrastructure, although Section 106 agreements will still be used for site-specific mitigation measures and for affordable housing provision.
Bath and North East Somerset Council approved a revised Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) at Cabinet on the 11th February 2015.
The Documents and Links associated with the preparation and approval of the Planning Obligations SPD can be found on the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document web page.
Information on the background, preparation, consultation and adoption of the Community Infrastructure Levy in Bath and North East Somerset is available within the CIL Timeline and History document.
The CIL is based on development proposals in the LDF, viability assessments and the Infrastructure Delivery Programme (IDP).
