Developer Contributions

Contributions from developers play an important role in delivering the infrastructure that these new homes, and local economies, require. The mechanisms for securing these contributions are section 106 agreements (s106) and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

s106 Agreements

s106 agreements are negotiated between planning authorities and developers, which secure the contributions necessary to make a development acceptable, such as affordable housing and infrastructure including parks and new schools.

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 allows planning authorities to charge a fixed rate per square metre of development to fund infrastructure which addresses the cumulative impact of development in their area.

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

The story map provides information on what s106 monies have been received in each Parish (and Community Network Area) and the planning application that receipts relate to, how much s106 money has been spent in the area, and what it has been spent on.
