Nottingham City Council has prepared this Education Contributions Supplementary Planning Document in order to provide additional guidance the City Council’s approach to seeking contributions towards education infrastructure provision from new housing development within the city. Policy 19 of the Aligned Core Strategy 2014 (ACS) and Policies IN4 (Developer Contributions) and Policy LS5 (Community Facilities) of the Land and Planning Policies Local Plan Part 2 (LAPP) provide the policy basis for requiring such contributions.

This SPD outlines the City Councils approach to raising financial contributions via planning obligations under section 106 (s106) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended).

This SPD provides more detail on the local approach to seeking developer contributions for education while taking account of updated DfE guidance: ‘Securing developer contributions for education’ (November 2019).

The contributions raised will be directed to funding works associated with addressing the increased pressure on existing school provision that a development will generate. This approach will ensure that new housing development makes a proportionate contribution to meeting the additional requirement for education provision that it will generate.
