Infrastructure Funding Statement

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) regulations and National Planning Policy Framework require for the financial year 2019/2020 onward, any local authority that has received developer contributions (section 106 planning obligations or Community Infrastructure Levy) must publish online an infrastructure funding statement by 31 December 2020 and by 31 December each year thereafter. 

The Infrastructure Funding Statement (2019/2020) is published under the Open Government Licence

The intention is that the data and infrastructure funding statements will give policy makers better insights into how developer contributions are supporting new development and local infrastructure. This report provides a summary of financial contributions the Council has secured through Section 106 agreements (s106) from new developments.

The report provides - 

  • An overview of s106 agreements
  • The process for off-site financial contributions
  • S106 contributions secured during the 2019/20 monitoring period
  • The s106 contributions received by the Council during the 2019/20 monitoring period
  • The s106 contribution transactions completed by the Council in the 2019/20 monitoring period
  • Contributions delivered on site from S106 contributions during 2019/20 monitoring period
  • Previous secured s106 contributions, expected to be delivered in the future

The information included in the report will be updated annually and published on the Council’s website. This will ensure the most up to date information on the amount of developer contributions received by the Council from new developments, in addition to information on where these monies have been spent is readily available to members of the public and other interested parties.

As part of the developer contributions annual requirement, three separate CSV files have been completed in the required format. These CSV files are published under the Open Government Licence, they will be updated annually and can be found below:
