Funding infrastructure

The council uses various funding sources to fund infrastructure that is required in the borough which includes contributions secured from developers such as the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) that includes the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) and Section 106 (s106) planning obligations.

The council plans for infrastructure over the long term through the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP). This identifies requirements like schools, health centres, parks and open spaces to meet current and future need across the borough.

In the shorter term, the council identifies and agrees infrastructure priorities to be delivered using CIL and/or s106 and other funding through the Capital Programme.

The Capital Programme is a list of schemes the council is investing in. It shows the approved budget allocation, source of funding and where and when the scheme is planned for delivery.

Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS)

The Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) sets out the year’s income and expenditure relating to CIL and S106.

Local Planning Authorities (LPA’s) are required to publish an IFS on their website each year under the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended).

The IFS replaces the CIL annual report that was previously required under the CIL regulations. The council’s CIL annual reports can be viewed on the CIL page and the IFS for previous years can be accessed via the following links.
