Supplementary planning document on developer contributions

This document is supplementary to the development plan. It provides guidance for those involved in planning applications where developer contributions may be required.

It clarifies our approach to planning obligations concerning matters such as

  • affordable housing
  • community safety
  • education
  • highways and access
  • the public realm
  • open space
  • recreation

We commissioned Scott Wilson to carry out all the preparatory work up to the production of a draft document. This supplementary planning document was approved by our planning committee on 25 September 2007 and subsequently adopted by Cabinet on 17 October 2007.
