The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is collected by Shropshire Council through charges made for development in Shropshire. The way it is spent must be in accordance with CIL Regulations.
CIL is to help fund infrastructure to facilitate growth and the economic benefit of the wider area. Shropshire Council decides how this is spent. CIL Local is assigned to a particular area and how it is spent must be linked to development. Projects to which CIL Local is allocated must be included in the Place Plan for the area in which it is to be spent and it must be used for infrastructure needs. Again, Shropshire Council decides how CIL Local is spent although parish and town councils can put a project together and bid for CIL Local funds to be spent in their parish, but the project must accord with CIL Regulations.
Neighbourhood Funds are the town and parish councils’ share of the CIL and the town and parish councils themselves can spend this money how they feel will best benefit their local community. However, Neighbourhood Funds must be used for:
• The provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or
• Anything else which is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.
Town and parish councils are expected to work closely with the local community to decide on local priorities and how these funds should be spent. Town and parish councils should develop priorities into fully costed, deliverable projects. Neighbourhood Funds may be used as match-funding for the wider CIL pot to ensure delivery of an agreed priority.
If funds are not used to support development as specified Shropshire Council can require the repayment of these monies.
