The ability for a local planning authority to charge the levy came into effect from April 2010, and the Council adopted CIL in April 2013.
Government regulations and guidance set out the process to be followed in preparing a charging schedule including requirements for consultation and an Independent Examination. The charging schedule needs to be based on viability and infrastructure planning evidence.
The rate(s) (at pounds per square metre) set in a charging schedule must be based on appropriate and available evidence and must aim to strike a balance between the desirability of funding (in whole or in part) the estimated total cost of infrastructure required to support the development of the area, taking into account other actual and expected sources of funding; and, the overall potential effects of the levy on the economic viability of development across the area.
Fareham Borough Council formally approved a Revised Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule on 10 June 2021 to start from 15 June 2021.
Development permitted from 15 June 2021 will be liable to pay the Levy as per the charges set out in the schedule below. Charges will be payable when development starts.
Payment may be made by instalments in the circumstances as set out in the instalments policy below.
When you make a planning application, you will have to submit additional information to us to allow us to calculate your CIL liability and any discounts correctly. Please do this using the additional information form available from the Planning Portal.
