Infrastructure Delivery

To support the delivery of sustainable communities, we will ensure that suitable provision is made for new or improved infrastructure, required to meet the levels of growth identified in the Development Plan.

Developers will be required to contribute to the reasonable costs of:

  • enhancing existing infrastructure or
  • providing new physical, social and green infrastructure

required as a result of their proposals, through either:

  • financial contributions (by means of planning obligations)
  • direct provision of such infrastructure on-site within the development

To secure this we will use:

  • Section 106 agreements
  • unilateral undertakings
  • planning conditions

Supporting infrastructure should be provided in advance of, or alongside, the development, unless there is sufficient existing capacity. The appropriate phasing for the provision of infrastructure will however be determined on a case by case basis.

We do not operate a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Funding sources for infrastructure delivery will be investigated as part of the preparation of the new District Local Plan, but there are currently no plans to adopt a CIL charging schedule.  We will also continue to work with partners to address existing deficiencies and secure appropriate levels of funding.

Planning obligations 

Planning obligations are used to secure community infrastructure to meet the needs of residents in new developments.

Infrastructure Funding Statement 

Amendments to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) regulations came into force on 01/09/2019, requiring local authorities to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) on their website by the 31st December 2020.
