Planning contributions supplementary planning document 2015

Planning contributions explained

The Council adopted the planning contributions SPD in November 2015. The SPD will operate alongside the Hackney Community infrastructure levy (CIL) which was introduced in April 2015.

The planning contributions SPD (2015) sets out the Council’s approach to determining planning obligations when considering planning applications for development in Hackney. The objective of the SPD is to provide clarity to developers, development management officers, stakeholders and local residents regarding the basis on which planning contributions will be sought. The SPD details the type of planning contributions that may be required, the qualifying development thresholds and monetary contribution formulae where appropriate and indicates the relative importance that the Council places on the varying types of planning contributions.

The SPD was made available for public consultation for 6 weeks between 15 January 2014 to 26 February 2014. Following the consultation the document was modified to take account of the representations made and was formally adopted on 25 November 2015.
