Developer Contributions

Developer Contributions help deliver infrastructure that new homes and local economies need. These contributions are section 106 agreements (s106) and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

Infrastructure Funding Statement

Continue reading
Any planning authority that issues a:
  • CIL liability notice, or
  • enters into section 106 agreement,
needs to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) annually. The IFS includes detail on the amount of:
  • developer contributions collected,
  • allocated, and
  • spent

in order to make the process of infrastructure funding more transparent.  Cornwall Council have produced an Infrastructure Funding Statement for 2019/20

s106 agreements are negotiated between planning authorities and developers. These then secure the contributions necessary to make a development acceptable.

Planning contributions for primary care services

Cornwall Council has worked with:

  • NHS Kernow;
  • NHS England; and
  • NHS Improvement

to produce a guide to planning contributions and health care provision in relation to primary care premises.

This guide responds to levels of growth which will increase impact on primary care services in Cornwall. This growth means extra resource and funding for health care premises are needed. For example, extra housing increases local population pressure on health care services. It is necessary for the planning system to help ensure extra health care is provided in affected areas. The level of extra resource is subject to viability testing. This is supported by the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and Policy 28 of the Cornwall Local Plan.

The guidance note sets out how NHS Kernow aim to collect financial contributions. This will help to reduce the impact of development on health care provision where need has been identified. It relates only to primary care services at present.

Contributions will only be sought where a need is identified by NHS Kernow (in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement). More information is available on NHS Kernow’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee webpage.

CIL is a fixed charge per square metre on development. The funds generated help tackle the cumulative impact of development related to infrastructure.

For further information please see our Community Infrastructure Levy web page.
