Background to Basingstoke and Deane's CIL

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council (BDBC) adopted its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and supporting policies on 22 March 2018 and came into effect on 25 June 2018.

The draft Charging Schedule went through four formal rounds of consultation (as set out below) before it was submitted for independent examination.

CIL Examination hearing sessions were held into the proposed CIL rates in September 2017 and January 2018. Information on the examination, including all of the background documents and submissions from participants.

CIL Examiner's Report was received in March 2018 and a report was prepared to seek agreement and adoption of CIL at a meeting of Full Council on 22 March 2018. A short report outlines the amendments made to the CIL rates as a result of the Examiner's recommendations.
