Introduction

1.1. This report provides information on the monetary (and non-monetary) contributions sought and received from developers for the provision of infrastructure to support development in Portsmouth, and the subsequent use of those contributions by Portsmouth City Council. The report covers the financial year 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020.

1.2. Portsmouth seeks developer contributions through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and Section 106 agreements (also known as “planning obligations”).

CIL

1.3. CIL was introduced in 2010 and has been charged in Portsmouth since April 2012. CIL is a set charge, based on the gross internal area floorspace of buildings, on most new development to help fund the infrastructure needed to address the cumulative impact of development across our area. Our CIL charging schedule, setting out our CIL charging rates, is available on our website.

1.4. Local planning authorities must use CIL to fund ‘the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure to support the development of the area’. There is also a neighbourhood portion of CIL – ‘Local CIL’ – which is similarly able to fund infrastructure but can also fund ‘anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area’ following engagement with local communities.

Planning Obligations

1.5. Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 enables a local planning authority to enter into a negotiated agreement – a planning obligation – to mitigate the impact of a specific development, to make it acceptable in planning terms. The planning obligation might, for example, require the provision or contribution to a new or improved road or local green infrastructure. Local planning authorities can also seek planning obligations to secure a proportion of affordable housing from residential developments.

2.6. The (CIL) Infrastructure List

2.7. Regulation 121A(1)(a) requires the infrastructure funding statement to include:

“a statement of the infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure which the charging authority intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded by CIL (other than CIL to which regulation 59E or 59F applies) (“the infrastructure list”)”

This Infrastructure List replaces the previous Regulation 123 list (see appendix A).

Infrastructure which may be wholly or partly funded by CIL:

  • Transport (including road networks, transport interchanges and park & ride)
  • Flood Defences (including Portsea Island Coastal Defence Strategy)
  • Schools (including academies and free schools)
  • Hospitals (including healthcare and social care facilities)
  • Green Infrastructure (including play areas, open spaces and parks)
  • Recreational Facilities (including cultural and sports facilities)
  • Community Safety Facilities (including police stations).

2.8 Narrative

The Portsmouth City Council five year rolling Capital Programme which is approved at Cabinet and Full Council includes details of infrastructure to be funded by CIL. The flexibility afforded by the infrastructure list will allow CIL income to be directed/redirected to the most needed supporting infrastructure in the event of changing priorities. Updates on spending and allocations will be provided in the annual infrastructure funding statement.

The cost of infrastructure needed to support the development of Portsmouth continues to outstrip income received from developer contributions and a significant funding gap exists. After publication of the new Portsmouth Plan, it is anticipated that a CIL charging schedule review will be undertaken to ensure an appropriate charging rate is set.

Appendix A - replaced regulation 123 list

Regulation 123 list is valid from 1 April 2012.

Regulation 123 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 restricts the use of planning obligations for infrastructure that will be funded in whole or in part by the Community Infrastructure Levy, to ensure no duplication between the two types of developer contributions*. A CIL charging authority is expected to publish a list of infrastructure that will benefit from CIL on its website.

The list below sets out those infrastructure projects that Portsmouth City Council intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded by CIL.  In accordance with Regulation 123, developer contributions to the projects listed will not be sought through planning obligations.

The city council will review this list at least once a year, as part of its monitoring of CIL collection and spend.

NB inclusion of infrastructure types in this list does not signify a commitment from the city council to fund all the projects listed, or the entirety of any one project through CIL. The order in the table does not imply any order of preference for spend.
