This report asks Cabinet and FACS to note the
update of the Education Infrastructure Contribution Policy. The
policy was first approved by Cabinet in 2017 but has not been
updated due to proposals by Planning Services to create an
authority-wide contributions policy and by Government to overhaul
the current system of securing developer contributions, neither of
which have as yet been implemented.
However, the report ostensibly requests Cabinet’s approval to increase the amount of contribution requested within the policy from developers in relation to Special Educational Needs infrastructure in order to reflect that the percentage of the population of school-age students in Northumberland with complex needs has risen from 3% to 4% since 2017. Cabinet and FACS are also asked to note that some minor non-material amendments have also been made to update the policy.
