What is CIL?

The CIL is a charge on new development payable to Bracknell Forest Council. It is used to address demands of growth, including funding infrastructure such as new schools and transport improvements, needed to support new development in the borough. For more information, visit the Government’s guidance on the operation of CIL.

On 6 April 2015, Bracknell Forest Council commenced charging the CIL.

The following documents set out the council’s CIL charging regime

  • CIL Charging Schedule - sets out the CIL rates and charging zones
  • CIL Instalment Policy - according to the amount of CIL payable, this sets out when payment to the council will be due
  • CIL ‘Regulation 123’ list  - lists those infrastructure types and projects to be funded wholly or partly by CIL
  • CIL Surcharges and Interest - provides guidance on the council’s surcharge and interest policy on CIL demands
  • CIL rates with indexation increase - includes the CIL rates with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) A-I-TPI increase from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019

Section 106 Planning Obligations, although scaled back, will continue to operate alongside CIL in the funding and delivery of infrastructure to support growth. View the council’s approach to securing Planning Obligations.
