Infrastructure Funding Statement

The latest Government Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations came into force on 1 September 2019. These new regulations introduce the requirement for the Council to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) annually by 31 December.

The IFS sets out how developer contributions have been and will be used to provide infrastructure within the Ribble Valley. This funding has been secured through planning permissions using the policies of the Adopted Ribble Valley Core Strategy.

The latest data for the period 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022 is in the latest Infrastructure Funding Statement.

Reporting Developer Contributions Data

The Government requires all local planning authorities to publish their developer contributions data on a regular basis and in an agreed format. The Council publishes its developer contributions data annually in three CSV files which are provided under the Open Government Licence:

  • Developer agreements
    • Lists all developer agreements secured by the Council. A developer agreement is any legal document that secures contributions from a development for infrastructure or affordable housing.
  • Developer agreement contributions
    • Contains the individual obligations or sums within each agreement, assigned to particular purposes such as affordable housing.
  • Developer agreement transactions
    • Details each transaction relating to a developer agreement and the status of the individual obligations or sums in each agreement.
