What is an infrastructure funding statement?
Housing and other developments in Lincolnshire are essential to make sure our economy and communities thrive.
Developments can also lead to an increased need for public services such as schools, transport and other infrastructure. All local authorities in Lincolnshire take their responsibility for planning very seriously. Councils work together to consider the positive and negative impacts of any development, before permission is granted.
Construction companies and developers will often be required to make contributions towards local improvements. This could be to increase the size of a local school, to provide a more regular bus service or to create a cycle path.
We have put together a statement setting out summary details on the improvements that have been and could be made from these contributions. Lincolnshire's seven district councils will soon publish statements on their websites for development contributions in their local areas.
