Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

Fareham Borough Council consulted on its Community Infrastructure Levy Draft Charging Schedule in relation to Welborne. The consultation is now closed.

In accordance with the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, the Council has now considered the representations made to the consultation and proposed a number of modifications to be included within the Charging Schedule.

The Statement of Representation and Proposed Modifications can be found on the Draft Charging Schedule Review Consultation 2020 page.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge on new development.

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.
