What's a community infrastructure levy? - Our CIL charge

Bassetlaw District Council CIL Charge

Following an independent Examination into the Council’s proposals the Council adopted its CIL Charging Schedule, which charges varying amounts for different types of development in different parts of the District, in June 2013.

The Charging Schedule came into effect from 1 September 2013 and applies to all relevant applications determined after this time regardless of when they were submitted. This includes applications which are approved on appeal even if the appeal was submitted prior to the Charging Schedule coming into effect.

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. It will be based on the rates set out in the CIL Charging Schedule and payment will be in accordance with the adopted instalment policy.

The amount of CIL liable will be dependent on where the development is located within the District, the 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. For information about the CIL rates within your area please refer to the CIL Charging Schedule below.
