Developer contributions towards education provision are secured by means of conditions attached to planning permissions under Section 106 of The Town and Country Planning Act 1990 or the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Contributions are sought by the Education and Skills School Organisation and Development Team and collected either direct by the County Council or, in some cases, by the District or Borough Council on the County Council’s behalf.
The contributions are required to mitigate the impacts of development and/or make the development acceptable in planning terms. When secured, the funding usually has a 10 year ‘life’ in which funds should be spent, in accordance with the criteria in the Section 106 agreement.
Following a detailed review of Section 106 funds received for Education the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to approve the allocation of Section 106 funds to deliver a number of Education capital projects across the County.
