More information about community facilities S106 funding availability by ward will be made available by mid-February. For now, please be aware that S106 funding levels are particularly low in Arbury, Castle, Cherry Hinton, Market, Newnham and West Chesterton wards. The reasons for this are explained in the S106 report [PDF, 144kB] to the Community Services Scrutiny Committee on 18 January.

Projects funded from the 2017 S106 funding round

Proposals for play area and open space improvements and small-scale public art projects were invited in late 2016 and assessed against our S106 selection criteria in early 2017. Decisions about which eligible proposals to fund (subject to conditions) were made in spring 2017. See the list of 2016/17 prioritised projects [PDF, 23kB]

These projects are now being taken forward. See S106 projects.

Other S106 contribution types

Beyond that, no decisions have yet been made about arrangements for other S106 funding rounds. This because the availability of developer contributions for other S106 funding rounds is running down. See Changes to S106 funding.

We are currently not accepting applications for other S106 funding types. 

Any queries?: phone our S106 programme co-ordinator on 01223 457313 or email: S106@cambridge.gov.uk.
