The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Planning has launched an inquiry into England’s developer contributions systems, which will run over the summer of 2023.
The APPG is calling on local government, housebuilders, social and affordable housing providers and other interested academics, charities and businesses to submit evidence about the Government’s proposed Infrastructure Levy and explore proposals to improve existing Section 106 (S106) and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) mechanisms.
The inquiry aims to build on the work of successive governments, parliamentary committees and other experts to recommend improvements to our planning system in recent years.
The objectives of this inquiry are:
- To assess the opportunities and challenges facing England’s developer contributions systems today
- To collect evidence and the experiences of organisations, professions and people using Section 106 and CIL to enable development
- To assemble and review proposals made to improve the performance of England’s developer contributions mechanisms in recent years
- To help parliamentarians understand the nature of responses submitted to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ recent technical consultation on the Infrastructure Levy
- To make recommendations to Government on the future direction of its planning reforms
This consultation closed on 5 September. We are now reviewing all contributions. Thank you to those who have already submitted responses.
