What is the CIL?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on new development to help fund supporting infrastructure across Shropshire.
CIL was introduced within the National CIL Regulations, which are available to view at: www.legislation.gov.uk
When did the CIL come into effect?
Shropshire Council was one of the first Authorities to introduce a CIL Charging Schedule. The Schedule came into effect on the 1 January 2012 and applies to all eligible development approved after this date.
The rates within the schedule were informed by an economic viability assessment and consultation with both the general public and the development industry. The Schedule was also subject to examination by an independent inspector from the Planning Inspectorate.
