Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide further details, guidance and principles for which development is expected to follow. These Supplementary Plans are material considerations when processing planning applications and development proposals in the city. This means that they have to be considered when making a planning decision.
NEW COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE LEVY AND DEVELOPER CONTRIBUTION SPD TO TAKE EFFECT FROM 1st SEPT 2013
The City Council is introducing a Community Infrastructure Levy and a revised Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to replace the current approach to developer contributions as set out in the previous Planning Obligations SPG.
Southampton City Council produced an initial consultation draft Planning Obligations SPD in 2011. Consultation on the draft document closed on 6 February 2012. A further consultation exercise was undertaken in 2012. This document has been revised to reflect the proposals for the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy and the Developer Contributions SPD applies to new development proposals in addition to the CIL.
The new Developer Contributions SPD can be downloaded below.
Details of the new Community Infrastructure Levy can be found here.
