Developer contributions - have your say

Give your views on a draft revised approach to securing developer contributions

Closed consultations

We are reviewing our 'developer contributions' policy - this sets out the approach the council takes to securing funding from housing developers for local infrastructure and services to benefit communities affected by new developments.

Revised guidance has been produced to meet the challenges and opportunities arising from anticipated growth and development within the county.

The key changes to the policy are:

  • Education – an enhanced, detailed educational methodology and justification of the requirements for education contributions has been added, including new pupil yield rates, early years provision and transitional arrangements;
  • Social care and health – a set of metrics have been developed to better assess the impacts that new developments may have on social infrastructure required to meet national policy requirements of sustainable development;
  • Highways and transport – to maintain growth, provisions have been added to ensure, where appropriate, new developments will be required to mitigate any stifling effect they have on the proper and efficient operation of the transport system. Also, to encourage sustainable transport the Policy now emphasises the need to ensure, so far as possible, contributions are targeted to achieve better use of public transport;
  • Waste management – a more integrated approach is proposed that takes into consideration the wider waste network and infrastructure requirements that new development may demand
