The LDF Implementation Plan for 2012-2013 is available at the bottom of the page and was approved by cabinet on the 4th April 2012. It provides clarity on the main infrastructure requirements for Shropshire's settlements, to support the LDF, based on information within the place plans. It identifies whether developer contributions will be sought for each requirement, and sets out general principles as to whether these will be addressed through Section 106 Agreements, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or direct developer funding.
CIL List 2012-2013
The LDF Implementation Plan also includes the annual CIL list (CIL Regulation 123) which sets out the priorities for the use of CIL. It has been established as part of the review cycle set out in the code of practice and agreed by cabinet.
Code of practice
The code of practice sets out the governance arrangements for annually reviewing the place plans. It is in two parts. The first ‘Developer Contributions Code of Practice’ sets out the annual discussion that will take place with each town and parish council to identify local investment priorities within each locality. The second ‘Infrastructure Provision Code of Practice’ sets out the annual discussion that will take place with infrastructure providers, to identify Shropshire's strategic infrastructure needs.
In addition to reviewing the place plans, the code of practice provides the framework for determining annual priorities for the use of monies received through the CIL. It sets out that 10% of all CIL monies will be used for strategic infrastructure (identified through the Infrastructure Provision Code of Practice) and 90% will be made available for local infrastructure priorities within the settlement in which the development has taken place (identified through the Developer Contributions Code of Practice). These annual priorities for the use of CIL are set out in the CIL list within the LDF Implementation Plan.
A resource pack for the Shropshire Place Plans has been put together to assist town and parish councils and Shropshire councillors in understanding their role in working with communities to identify the local priorities for the use of CIL. A copy of the resource pack is available below.
