What are developer contributions? Also known as S106 funds, they are paid by developers in order to mitigate the impact of new homes and other buildings, which create extra demands on local facilities.

Changes to S106 funding: Since April 2015, the rules governing the use of S106 funding have changed. New S106 contributions now focus on specific projects identified before planning approval.

Does the council still run annual S106 funding rounds? Yes, these focus on the use of those remaining generic (non-specific) S106 contributions agreed before April 2015. The availability of this funding is running down. The council can only seek proposals from those parts of the city where there is relevant generic S106 contributions still available.
Proposals for the 2020 S106 funding round (for play area, open space and community facility improvements) were invited until the end of July. The applications received have been assessed against the council’s selection criteria. Priority-setting reports will be considered by scrutiny committees in late September or early October.
