Developer contributions

New development can create impacts on infrastructure and services. Where this occurs, the County Council seeks to ensure that developers make necessary provision for appropriate infrastructure and services. These are known as developer contributions, or planning obligations.  

Developer contributions or planning obligations are secured through legal deeds called S106 agreements. Planning obligations contribute towards sustainable communities by enabling development to take place and mitigate the impacts of development to help make it acceptable in planning terms.

Over the next 30 years Leicestershire faces major growth. To meet the challenges and opportunities this presents, the County Council has revised its developer contributions policy to ensure it enables the necessary and proper provision of infrastructure and services which will be needed to support the areas of growth and its local communities.

Leicestershire Planning Obligations Policy

Leicestershire County Council has revised its developer contributions policy – the Leicestershire Planning Obligations Policy was adopted by the County Council on 10 July 2019 and it replaces The Statement of Requirements for Developer Contributions in Leicestershire'.
