Development Contributions SPD Consultation Draft

The North Northamptonshire Development Contributions SPD is intended to provide guidance on the amount of contributions that is expected from developments, where applicable, against a range of infrastructure typologies. This guidance would supplement Core Strategy policy 6.

The Core Spatial Strategy is committed to supporting developments with improvements to the physical and social infrastructure. Delivery of infrastructure is dependent on partnership working between a variety of public and private sector agencies. Where the need for infrastructure arises from development then the development industry will be expected to contribute towards its provision.

The purpose of the SPD is to provide clarity and greater certainty to local authorities, land owners, developers, stakeholders and the local community regarding the basis on which development contributions will be sought and used.
Due to its nature and content, the SPD is generally not likely to have a significant effect on European protected sites.
The draft SPD is being consulted on for 6 weeks from 8th October to 19th November. Following any changes through the consultation, the constituent authorities will then decide whether to adopt the documents.
