Developer Contributions Guide

Our Developer Contributions Guide is for:

  • local authorities
  • parish councils
  • developers
  • landowners
  • interested parties.

It gives an overview of the contributions we may expect if you're planning a new development. We'll use your contributions to make sure our infrastructure and services can support new housing.
