What is a community infrastructure levy? - What is CIL?

These pages are currently being updated following the adoption of the new Bassetlaw Community Infrastructure Levy 2024. Some of the information in this section may have changed and we're working as quickly as possible to get this updated.

Public Notice: The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) Regulations 2014 came into force on 23 February 2014. If you have a development for self-build residential an extension or annexe and this has not commenced, you may be eligible to apply for relief. For further information see below.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge that local authorities in England and Wales can require of most types of new development in their area (based on £ per square metres), to pay for the infrastructure needed to support development. CIL charges will be based on the size, type and location of the development proposed.

If you are considering buying land for development and/or submitting a planning application in the district, please be advised that the Council has adopted a new Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule 2024, which came into effect on 1 June 2024.

This applies to all relevant applications determined from this date (including those successful 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 also apply to Lawful Development Certificates and Permitted Development, depending on certain circumstances.

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.

The Council gives notice that Exceptional Circumstances Relief continues to apply in the district.

Money raised from CIL will be used to help infrastructure within the district. Further information can be found within the Infrastructure Funding Statement.
