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 2020) [PDF, 0.1MB], which sets out what they are for and how they can be used. It explains the differences between generic and specific S106 contributions.
- See the council's Planning Obligations Strategy supplementary planning document (the 2010 version).
- Look at our S106 agreements relating to all developments from 2007 and some before then. Contact us if you cannot find the one you are looking for from before 2007.
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 now inviting proposals for improving play areas, open spaces and community facilities within the city of Cambridge, as part of the 2020 S106 funding round. The deadline for applications is 9am on Thursday 30 April 2020. For more details, see S106 priority setting.
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.
