S106 funding rounds

Last updated: 27 October 2022.

Since 2012, we have run annual S106 funding rounds to make use of generic S106 contributions that are available in particular parts of the city. Our overview of S106 funding [PDF, 0.2MB] summarises our approach and explains more about generic and specific S106 contributions.

Most generic S106 contributions have already been spent on S106-funded projects. Some are still available, although they are now running low and are unevenly spread across the city. For example, generic S106 funding for play provision for children and teenagers is only now available in Trumpington ward

2021 S106 funding round

The 2021 S106 funding round concluded with proposals for open space and play area improvements and grant applications for community facility and small public art projects being reported to the Environment and Community Scrutiny Committee on 7 October 2021

The recommendations were agreed by the relevant Executive Councillors. These projects are now being taken forward.

2022 S106 funding round

The 2022 generic S106 funding round is now likely to take place between November 2022 to January 2023, culminating in recommendations for S106 funding in March 2022. Look out for more details on this page.

Given that the remaining generic S106 funds for play area and open space improvements is now available only in particular parts of the city, the development of proposals for the use of these S106 contribution types will focus on discussions with councillors in the relevant wards.

There will be a grants application process for S106 community facilities and sports funding. The 2022 funding round will also place greater emphasis on welcoming applications from local community and sports groups for small-scale improvements to the equipment, furnishings and equipment at their facilities, which could help them to provide additional benefit to their local communities.
