Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

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 new Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule at the meeting of Council on 9 April 2024.
