S106 process

Decisions on the use of S106 funding are made by executive councillors or area committees, depending on the type of project. All proposals for funding are assessed against our criteria for S106 funding and reported to committee. Here is a list of committee reports on S106 matters over the last five years [PDF, 25kB].

See S106 priority setting for how to apply in the 2018 S106 funding round for community facilities and public art grants.

All community and sports facility projects funded by S106 grants to community groups and organisations have community use agreements to ensure that they are accessible to all.

Did you know.....? The council has secured £4 million for open spaces in Cambridge to help mitigate the impact of development. A further 135 hectares of public open space is being provided as part of the major growth sites on the city's southern and north-west fringes. See Open spaces and S106 contributions [PDF, 35kB].
