Other County policy and guidance

This page contains links to general other policy and guidance produced by Devon County Council (either individually or in partnership with other organisations) which may have an impact upon the determination of applications for which the County Council holds responsibility.

  • Waste Management and Recycling - Development Contribution Methodology

    Devon County Council is the Waste Disposal Authority and as such is responsible for managing Local Authority Collected Waste. Public recycling centres across Devon play an important role in enabling the County Council to meet its statutory responsibility. Housing growth across the county is resulting in increasing demand and pressure upon these facilities of which many require replacement or expansion to meet capacity requirements.

    This paper sets out the methodology for calculating financial contributions which will be requested from development in order to maintain and improve the network of recycling centres and enable the impact of development to be accommodated.

  • Infrastructure Funding Statement

    There is a requirement for any local planning authority that receives a contribution from development, either through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or an agreement under Section 106 (S106) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended), to produce an
    annual Infrastructure Funding Statement.

    The Infrastructure Funding Statements summarise the contributions, both monetary and non-monetary, that Devon County Council has secured, received and spent from developer contributions for the each financial year (1st April – 31st March). The statements can be found below:

    Future statements will be produced for the following financial years.
