Shropshire Council

Distribution of CIL payments

We've resolved to distribute CIL to allow a direct link between new development and its contribution to the delivery of local community infrastructure needs.

Within Shropshire CIL is distributed as follows:

CIL Fund

Proportion of total fund

Responsible party

Area for spend

Administrative fee

5%

Shropshire Council

Administrative expenses incurred during the implementation and enforcement of CIL.

Neighbourhood Fund

25% where there is a Neighbourhood Plan or Neighbourhood Development Order

15% where there is not a Neighbourhood Plan (capped at £100 per council tax dwelling)

Town and Parish Councils

Provided directly to the local Town/Parish Council to fund locally identified infrastructure projects.

Please Note: The Neighbourhood Fund only applies where the CIL Liability Notice (usually issued shortly after a Planning Application is approved) has been issued since the introduction of the 2013 Amendment CIL Regulations on the 25 April 2013.

Of the remainder:

Strategic Infrastructure Fund

10%

Shropshire Council in conjunction with infrastructure providers

Strategic infrastructure priorities across Shropshire.

Local Infrastructure Fund

 

90%

Shropshire Council in conjunction with Town/Parish Councils

Local infrastructure priorities to meet the infrastructure needs in the area where development takes place, as identified by Town/Parish Councils within their Place Plans.

An example of this distribution is as follows:

A development has a CIL liability of £10,000.00. Of this:

  • £500.00 will be used for the administration of CIL;
  • £1,500.00 will be provided to the local community as Neighbourhood Fund;
  • £800.00 will be used for strategic infrastructure across Shropshire; and
  • £7,200.00 will be used to deliver local infrastructure within the area where the development takes place.

Shropshire Council has resolved to distribute CIL in this way to allow a direct link between new development and its contribution to the delivery of local community infrastructure needs. 

A calculator is available that indicates how CIL income from a development or within an area will be distributed. This calculator is for information only. The actual distribution of CIL is determined by the Shropshire Council CIL team.

Neighbourhood Fund

The Neighbourhood Fund (Meaningful Proportion) was introduced on 25 April 2013. It's the proportion of the CIL that is to be provided directly to the local community where a development takes place, through the relevant town or parish council. The government intends the Neighbourhood Fund to encourage communities to accommodate new development and to allow them the ability to address the subsequent impact of new development.

The Neighbourhood Fund represents:

  • 25% of the total CIL liability where there is an adopted formal neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order.
  • 15% of the CIL liability where there is not a neighbourhood plan (capped at £100 per council tax dwelling).

However, the Neighbourhood Fund only applies where the CIL liability notice (usually issued shortly after a planning application is approved) has been issued since the introduction of the 2013 Amendment CIL Regulations on 25 April 2013.

The Neighbourhood Fund is in addition to the Local Infrastructure Fund, which will be utilised by us in conjunction with town and parish councils to deliver the agreed infrastructure priorities identified through the place plan documents.

Payment of the Neighbourhood Fund will be made on an annual basis in April, coinciding with precept payments, unless requested otherwise by a town or parish council in order to facilitate delivery of a project.

CIL accounts

We'll periodically provide a breakdown of the CIL income and expenditure.
