Infrastructure Funding Statement

Infrastructure Funding Statement

New national planning regulations which came into force on 1st September 2019 stated that any local authority that receives a financial or non-financial contribution from development through Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or section 106 planning obligations must prepare an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) by the 31st December 2020 and annually thereafter.

This first report covers the period from 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020 and reports on all developer contribution receipts and expenditure during the financial period, as well as providing an ‘Infrastructure List’ that lists the infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure which the charging authority intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded through CIL.

East Sussex County Council (ESCC) has produced its own IFS for 2019-20, which reports on all developer contribution receipts and expenditure by the local authority and includes both highway projects and education provision, amongst other matters.
