3. Planning Obligation & Developer Contributions SPD

The Planning Obligations and Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was adopted in December 2005. The SPD outlines detailed policy on securing appropriate contributions towards certain infrastructure, services and facilities made necessary by new development.

The SPD has been prepared in two parts. Part 1 is the "Developers' Guide" which sets out justification for the Council's approach as well as the type of contribution to be sought. Part 2 is "Infrastructure and Amenity Requirements and Approved Programme of Schemes" which provides details of the extent of specific contributions that will be sought in relation to various types of development over a five-year period, and an indication of the types of schemes for which contributions will be applied.
