Developer contributions

Developer contributions allow us to secure infrastructure from developments in the local area

Infrastructure Funding Statement 

The government requires us to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement. It summarises all financial and non-financial developer contributions involving Hart in a given financial year. 

Community Infrastructure Levy 

When councils grant permission to build new homes, they can charge developers a Community Infrastructure Levy. This money is used to fund community facilities, such as new schools, roads and healthcare facilities. 

We consulted on a preliminary draft charging schedule and supporting evidence from 5 November 2021 to 17 December 2021. We received 30 responses from a range of organisations and individuals.  

We are considering the next steps, particularly in light of the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill. This includes a proposal for an ‘Infrastructure Levy’. This would replace the Community Infrastructure Levy.
