Planning obligations

Planning Obligations are legal agreements between a developer and the local planning authority, made to ensure that new development does not put a strain on existing services and facilities like open space, recreation and leisure facilities, roads, schools, libraries or other community services.

The IFS includes an Infrastructure Funding Statement Report and the following developer contribution spreadsheets:

These documents will be updated regularly to keep them up to date and accurate.
