You may need to submit some additional information  if your property is in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  Use the interactive map to find out if this applies to your property.

Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge that local authorities can implement to help deliver infrastructure and to support the development of their area. The money raised can be used to fund a wide range of infrastructure including schools, transport, flood defences, community and leisure facilities, recreation, health and police facilities. There's more information on the CIL here.

This means certain types of new development within South Oxfordshire will be subject to a charge to provide new infrastructure in the district. The CIL charge applied to new build residential development and large extensions will be £150 per square metre across the district, except in Didcot and Berinsfield where the CIL charge will be £85 per square metre.

The CIL charge for new supermarkets, superstores and retail warehouses will be £70 per square metre. Please note that indexation is applied.

Further information

This section provides guidance on what information you need to submit in relation to sustainable design with your  planning application.  It also provides links to other pages and websites where you can find further information.

The statement you will need to write should explain the proposal in relation to its context.  A good understanding of the context is essential to raise the quality of the design, access and sustainability of a proposal.  The statement must show how the proposal has addressed the nature of its surroundings and how it will improve the environment.

This will give you a guide to the process we follow with your application and the approximate timescales.  More complicated applications can take longer.

Contact Planning Customer Service for more information.
