Following its adoption by Bournemouth Borough Council the town’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) has come into effect as of the 1st of March 2016. That means that the Council will now charge CIL where applicable all developments granted planning permission from the 1st of March onwards and on appeals that have yet to be determined as of that date.
The Council’s adopted charging schedule sets the CIL rate that will be levied at £70 per square metre of floor space for residential developments (except on sites covered by the Town Centre Area Action Plan, for which the rate is zero). Developments of student accommodation (£40 per square metre), and some forms of retail development (up to £250 per square metre) are also liable for CIL.
Should you require any further advice or information in respect of the Council’s CIL Charging Schedule then please do not hesitate to contact us.
