The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on new development to help fund supporting infrastructure across Shropshire. Further information can be found on CIL on the Community Infrastructure Levy tab in the left hand menu.
The CIL rates applied within Shropshire Council are set out in the Shropshire CIL Charging Schedule. These are:
- £40 per square metre of new residential development in Shrewsbury, the market towns and key centres.
- £80 per square metre of new residential development elsewhere.
- Nil levy rate for affordable housing.
- Nil levy rate for employment-related and other non-residential types of development
The National CIL Regulations (2010) specify that CIL rates are subject to annual indexation using the national BCIS All-in Tender Price Index. The indexation for 2016 has resulted in a 14.73% increase of the CIL rates charged by Shropshire Council. This indexation applies to all development approved in 2016.
The spatial zones where these rates apply are identified within the maps supporting the CIL Charging Schedule.
