S106 developer contributions have to be used in line with policy requirements, regulations and conditions set in S106 agreements, in order to mitigate the impact of development.
Read our overview of S106 funding [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.
If you have a question about an S106 agreement, contact S106@greatercambridgeplanning.org.
Needs for specific S106 contributions, to mitigate the impact of planning applications for new major developments, are considered in reports to the Planning Committee. For major growth areas on the fringes of Cambridge, they are considered by 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.
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.
