Gloucestershire local developer guide: Infrastructure and services with new development
Locally prepared guide as how the County Council plans to engage with planning proposals, which may impact upon the infrastructure and services it is responsible for.
The County Council is committed to ensuring opportunities to secure the right levels of infrastructure and services are provided for, where it is practical and reasonable to do so. To support the Council's engagement in these matters a locally-prepared guide has been produced. This guide identifies items of County Council infrastructure and services that may be impacted by new development and therefore could require financial or other types of support in order for them to continue to meet the needs of local communities. The guide also sets out the council's developer contributions protocol that states how negotiations on contributions with developers will be pursed including issues such as phasing; the application of indexation; and monitoring.
The Gloucestershire Local Developer GuideOpens new window was adopted by County Council Cabinet in February 2014 following a period of public consultation undertaken between August and October 2013. The consultation followed Local Planning Regulations and met with the requirements set out within Gloucestershire's District and County Statements of Community Involvement (SCI's).
The County Council consider the Gloucestershire Local Developer Guide to have material weight in the consideration of future planning proposals. The guide has been prepared in line with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and has also been SEA screened under Environmental Assessment Regulations.
