Infrastructure Funding Statement

We publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) which shows how much money has been raised and how it has been spent in the previous year. This includes both CIL and section 106 income.  It also states which infrastructure projects will be, or may be, funded wholly or partly by CIL.

We must publish our IFS online by 31 December each year. The IFS must cover the previous year from 1 April to 31 March.

The Infrastructure Funding Statement is made up of:

  • a CIL report relating to the previous financial year on the Community Infrastructure Levy
  • a section 106 report relating to the previous financial year on section 106 planning obligations
  • an infrastructure list reporting on the infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure that the authority intends to fund wholly or partly by the CIL (excluding the neighbourhood portion)

Previous IFS

The previous Infrastructure Funding Statement covers the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020:

Our IFS should also be read alongside the West Sussex County Council IFS for a full picture of section 106 developer contributions paid and received. 

Developer contributions

Developer contributions include section 106 planning obligations, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), section 278 agreements and any agreements that either secure funding towards new development or provide infrastructure as part of any new development.

It is recommended that local planning authorities that have received developer contributions publish their data on a regular basis, at least once a year, and in an agreed format. This provides for transparency and accountability at the level of individual obligations.

Developer contributions data must be entered in 3 separate CSV (spreadsheet) files:

  • Developer agreements: listing all the legal agreements securing contributions from a development for infrastructure or affordable housing, and all the demand notices issued for CIL
  • Developer agreement contributions: listing the individual obligations/sums within an agreement, assigned to particular purposes, as well as the split in the CIL contribution purpose
  • Developer agreement transactions: listing whether the contribution has been received, allocated, transferred, spent or returned

Please note: data on developer contributions and IFS reports is imperfect, represents estimates at a given point in time, and can be subject to change. The data published above is the most robust available at the time, will always be a snapshot at that moment in time.

Please be aware that the above data files of agreements and contributions only show agreements and contributions data on s106 agreements signed from 1 April 2019 onwards. The transactions data file now includes entries relating to s106 received prior to 1 April 2019 where money is still to be spent (this is due to us carrying out back entry of data since our first IFS last year - 2019/20).

All data files contain the agreement, contribution and transaction data under CIL, as we only became a CIL collecting authority from 1 April 2020.
