Delivering Infrastructure - CIL and S106

All new developments need infrastructure to support them and there are a number of ways we can make sure South Oxfordshire gets the infrastructure it needs.

To explain our approach to making sure South Oxfordshire is properly supported by infrastructure, we have created a Delivering Infrastructure Strategy which:

  • sets the context for infrastructure planning in South Oxfordshire
  • provides an overview of the range of sources and mechanisms used to fund infrastructure, including CIL and Section 106 (S106)
  • explains how funding for infrastructure will be secured from developers and other sources

How we make sure infrastructure gets funded 

S106/S278 Planning Obligations

Planning obligations are legal agreements between a developer and the Council and/or County Council, entered into under S106/S278. These can be used to make a development acceptable where it would otherwise be unacceptable in planning terms. We will continue to seek S106 contributions towards site specific infrastructure and for the provision of affordable housing. Please follow the link below to view our S106 Supplementary Planning Document and information on current S106s we have entered into, including parish reports on monies collected and spent, and how to apply for funding

Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a non-negotiable levy that local authorities can choose to charge on new development in their area. The CIL Charging Schedule was adopted on 18 February 2016 and took effect on 1 April 2017. Please click here Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
