Our approach to S106
Last reviewed: 23 October 2017
S106 developer contributions have to be used in line with policy requirements, regulations and conditions set in S106 agreements.

- See the council's Planning Obligations Strategy Supplementary Planning Document (especially the current, 2010 version)
- Look at our S106 agreements relating to all developments from 2007 and some before then. If you cannot find the one you are looking for from before 2007), email S106@cambridge.gov.uk.
Decisions on the use of S106 funding are made by area committees or executive councillors, 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, 26kB].
See our S106 priority setting page for details of projects allocated developer contributions in our 2016/17 S106 funding round.
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.
