Infrastructure Funding Statement

The Council is required to produce an Infrastructure Funding Statement to summarise the details of s106 Agreements attached to planning permissions in each year; s106 Agreements secure contributions towards necessary infrastructure to accommodate new development.

The Statement will identify:

  • new s106 Agreements signed in the monitoring year;
  • money received by the Council from s106 Agreements;
  • money which has been spent by the Council on infrastructure projects;
  • money which the Council has received from s106 Agreements but is still to spend it on infrastructure projects; and
  • any non-financial contributions detailed in s106 Agreements (including affordable homes).

As the requirement to produce a Statement was introduced on 1st September 2019, the first Infrastructure Funding Statement covers the period 1st April 2019-31st March 2020. The Statement will be updated annually and published on the Council’s website.

To support the Statement, the Council is required to publish a set of Excel documents to identify the developer agreements, the contributions received and the transactions which took place in the monitoring year.
