What is a community infrastructure levy? - Our CIL charge

Bassetlaw District Council CIL Charge

Following an independent Examination, the Council adopted its new Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule 2024 on 29 May 2024, which came into effect on the 1 June 2024. The adoption notice can be viewed here.

This applies to all relevant applications determined from this date including approved on appeal and those where a resolution to grant has been made but a S106 agreement has yet to be finalised, even if they were submitted in advance of this time.

CIL may be required to be paid if planning permission is granted for your proposal and will be charged in pounds sterling (£) per square metre of the net additional increase in floorspace of any given development.

The amount of CIL liable will be dependent on type of use proposed, the amount of floorspace that is being created and the amount that is being lost i.e. through demolition or change of use.

The 2023 Charging Schedule will continue to apply to all planning decisions determined up to and including 31 May 2024.

A new Instalment Policy came into effect on 1 June 2024. This applies to all relevant development where the Council has received a commencement notice and agreed that the commencement date will be from 1 June 2024. In all other cases, the 2023 Instalment Policy continues to apply.

CIL Guidance:

To assist applicants and agents information is available on The CIL Process page of this website and on the Planning Portal.
