Shropshire communities benefiting from £18 million developer money

Steve Hale made this Freedom of Information request to Shropshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Shropshire Council,
I quote:
"Communities across Shropshire are benefiting to the tune of £18 million thanks to a charge put on new developments in the county.

School classrooms have been extended, a new drainage scheme, a new roundabout, a games area and a sports pavilion are amongst the projects to have benefited from Community Infrastructure Levy payments.

Shropshire Council has spent £2.3 million up to March 31, 2020 on projects through the fund with a further £15.7m allocated for future schemes. Another £18 million is in the pot to be spent in the future."

Can you please identify the projects and locations where this money has been spent and where - for the remainder - it is planned to be spent?

Yours faithfully,

Steve Hale

be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work. The
council acknowledges that it can’t extend statutory timescales of requests

to be given to other areas, eg the safeguarding of vulnerable people,
during this extraordinary period.
