1. The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a 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.  

Bath and North East Somerset Council approved the current CIL Charging Schedule in February 2015.  It took effect from 6 April 2015. 

Information on the background, preparation, consultation and adoption of the CIL Charging Schedule is available within the CIL Timeline and History document

If you are looking to apply CIL to Planning Applications you will find  guidance and a CIL calculator on the Development Management's page

3. The Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

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 directly related to the site, and for affordable housing provision.  The revised Planning Obligations SPD can be found via this link.
