Planning Obligations SPD 2020
12. LEICESTERSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL SERVICES
12.1 The County Council is a local planning authority in its own right and therefore is legally able to enter into and enforce a S106 obligation. The County Council will assess infrastructure needs and make requests for S106 developer contributions in relation to the following services:
- Adult social care and health;
- Civic amenity/waste management;
- Economic growth;
- Highways & transportation;
- Library service;
- Sports and recreation;
- Community safety; and
- Public health.
12.2 The Leicestershire Planning Obligations Policy was adopted by the County Council in July 2019 to set out its own approach to planning obligations. The document explains the level and type of infrastructure which would be expected to address the impacts of development in order to make it acceptable in planning terms and to set out clearly the standard requirements the County Council may seek in order to mitigate the impacts of new development.
