Shape Dynamics possesses a large set of solutions in common with General Relativity. Upon close inspection, these solutions behave in surprising ways, so in order to probe the fitness of Shape Dynamics as a viable alternative to General Relativity one must understand increasingly complex solutions, on which to base perturbative studies and numerical analyses. We show that a class of time-dependent exact solutions of Shape Dynamics exists from first principles, representing a central inhomogeneity in an evolving cosmological environment. By assuming only a perfect fluid source in a spherically symmetric geometry, we show that this solution satisfies in all generality the Hamiltonian structure of Shape Dynamics. The solutions are characterized by shear-free flow of the fluid and admit an interpretation as cosmological black holes.
