Gloucestershire local developer guide: Infrastructure and services with new development
Locally prepared guide explaining 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 securing the right levels of infrastructure and services from developments, 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 sets out the Council's developer contributions protocol that states how negotiations on contributions with developers will be pursued including issues such as phasing, indexation, and monitoring.
The Gloucestershire Local Developer Guide was adopted by County Council Cabinet in December 2016 following a period of public consultation. The consultation Cabinet Report and consultation responses can be viewed at item 7 of the meeting:
The Local Developer Guide will be updated when necessary. Multipliers and costs are reviewed annually and updated where required. The most commonly adjusted multipliers relate to education contributions. As of April 2016 the costs are:
- Pre-school and Primary School Places: £13,211
- Secondary School and 6th Form Places: £20,148
These will be updated following publication of the updated relevant index.
