What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on new development payable to the 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, the 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

Note on the CIL ‘Regulation 123’ list

The requirement for the council to maintain a CIL Regulation 123 list has been removed following the enactment of the new CIL Regulations 2019 on 1 September 2019.

Therefore, the CIL Regulation 123 list is now to be used as an informative document on how infrastructure may and will be delivered and funded in Bracknell Forest through CIL income and section 106 planning obligations. The council's CIL Regulations 123 list will be replaced by the councils new Infrastructure Funding Statement by 31 December 2020.

Section 106 Planning Obligations

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.
