As well as bringing new local homes and business premises to the district, new developments boost the local area in lots of other ways – from supporting new infrastructure such as roads and schools, through to funding local projects and priorities.

There are two ways local developments fund local infrastructure and initiatives – community infrastructure levy (CIL) payments and section 106 (S106) agreements that are secured through the planning process.
