Last updated: 8 July 2021
Developer contributions, often known as ‘S106 contributions’, are paid by developers to mitigate the impact of new homes and other buildings, which create extra demands on local facilities.

Every ward in Cambridge has benefitted from new or improved facilities, funded from S106 contributions, which help to mitigate the impact of development. These include community meeting rooms, play areas, open spaces, sports centres, and public art.
