6. How much will I pay?

CIL liable applications that receive a Decision Notice dated on or after 1 September 2016 will be charged in accordance with the rates set out in the CIL Charging Schedule.

National policy requires CIL charges to be index linked to the Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) national all-in tender price index for the year when planning permission is granted for the development. This index is published by the  BCIS index the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

The updated BCIS indexation is applied to planning permissions granted  from January 1st each year, informed by the index for 1st November for the preceding year.

In practice this indexation means that CIL rates are:

Original Charging Schedule Rate Indexed CIL rate charged for 2017
£68 £72.30
£80 £84.74
£125 £132.41
£150 £158.89

The next indexation will apply from 1st January 2018, and the rates shown on this webpage will be updated at this time.
