Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document

1. Introduction

Representation ID: 8428

Received: 25/03/2020

Respondent: Countryside Properties (UK) Ltd

Agent: Barker Parry Town Planning

Representation:

The Draft SPD provides little clarity regardng the nature of developer contributions that may be sought. This may affect viability and delivery as unforeseen and unjustified contributions are sought.

Paragraph 1.3.4 - The lack of formulaic approach is unjustified considering figures arising from the viability evidence.

PPG states "Policies for planning obligations should be set out in plans and examined in public. Policy requirements should be clear so that they can be accurately accounted for in the price paid for land."

Suggestion made that the Infrastructure Delivery Plan provides an evidence base for infrastructure need and cost. If the plan is adopted, no reason for SPD could not adopt a basic formulaic approach. Other SPDs set out thresholds and methods of calculating contributions.

References to 'correct at the time of writing' need clarification.

7.2.1 - Developers may be liable to contribute land as well as financial contributions. This approach is unreasonable, and should be reviewed. The developer is entirely within their right to recover relevant land value for alternative purposes associated with infrastructure that is not solely required in respect of their site.

7.10.3 - Contributions for boosting high-speed communication coverage is not supported by a policy and offers lack of clarity associated with what may be sought or the scale of the contribution.
