Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council adopted its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on 22 March 2018 and it will be brought into effect on 25 June 2018. The levy will apply across the area of Basingstoke and Deane Borough. View the report to Full Council which sought agreement to CIL.

A further report has been prepared to outline how the Borough Council has responded to the Examiners recommendations (opens in a new window) (PDF) [174kb]

The CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended) enable authorities to raise finance for infrastructure by imposing a charge on development within their area. Funds collected through CIL will be spent by each council on the infrastructure needed to support the development of their area. Each authority can decide its priorities for expenditure, and the required infrastructure can fall within a broad definition from transport and schools to cultural and sports facilities.

The Borough Council’s CIL charge is levied on different geographic areas and forms of residential development, which takes into account the various exemptions around CIL, in line with national guidance. Further information will be placed on this website in the near future to outline these. Details of the charging zones are set out in the CIL Charging Schedule.

Under the CIL regulations, limitations have been placed on the ability of councils to use S106 monies to provide for infrastructure beyond the mitigation of specific developments after a CIL Charging Schedule is adopted or after April 2015 (whichever is sooner). The Council has produced an Infrastructure List (opens in a new window) (PDF) [200kb] which forms a part of the Infrastructure Funding Statement (opens in a new window) (PDF) [390kb] which sets out the infrastructure which will not be funded through S106 contributions. A Planning Obligations for Infrastructure Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been prepared to outline how planning obligations will be sought from 25 June 2018 alongside CIL.
