Our approach to S106

Last updated: 15 May 2019

S106 developer contributions have to be used in line with policy requirements, regulations and conditions set in S106 agreements.

Read our overview of S106 funding (March 2019) [PDF, 78Kb], which sets out what they are for and how they can be used. It explains the differences between generic and specific S106 contributions.

S106 agreements

S106 processes

Needs for specific S106 contributions, to mitigate the impact of planning applications for new major developments, are considered in reports to the Planning Committee or, for major growth areas on the fringes of Cambridge, the Joint Development Control Committee.

Proposals for the use of generic S106 funding are assessed against our S106 selection criteria and reported to the relevant scrutiny committee. Decisions on which eligible proposals to fund are then made by the appropriate executive councillor.

We are not currently inviting proposals for S106 funding. For more details about the most recent 2019 S106 funding round (now closed), see S106 priority setting.

Grant agreements

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.
