Approval to publish an updated version of the Education Section 106 Infrastructure Approach dated February 2020.
The following points were approved:
- Approval to publish an updated version of the Education Section 106 Infrastructure Approach dated February 2020.
- Approval is also sought to periodically update this document without further authorisation when the DfE publishes updated pupil place scorecards. These are usually published on an annual basis.
Publishing an updated document will ensure that the approach
to securing developer contributions for education provision is informed by Department for Education guidance.
An up to date approach will assist in securing an appropriate level of developer contributions to mitigate development impacts and ensure that Devon County Council’s statutory responsibilities regarding ensuring sufficient pupil places can be fulfilled.
An alternative option would be to continue using the existing approach, however this is now out of date in a number of areas, notably the cost of provision. This would reduce the authority’s ability to secure adequate funding towards education infrastructure and meet its responsibilities around pupil place planning.
A copy of this decision and any supporting documentation considered by the Officer taking this decision may also be made available or inspection by the public at the Council’s Offices or posted upon payment of any copying and postage charges. Any member of the public wishing to take up either of these options is asked to please ring 01392 382888 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
