Developer contributions, also known as ‘S106 contributions’, are paid by developers to mitigate the impact of new housing.
Our overview of S106 funding [PDF, 0.2MB] explains more about what they are and how they are used in Cambridge.
The Council's infrastructure funding statement sets out the contributions we have secured, allocated, spent or still have available. See the Greater Cambridge Planning Service’s guide to S106-funded projects in 2021/22.
If you are a developer or landowner and have a query about an S106 agreement that is being finalised, or about payment arrangements, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your query relates to our generic S106 funding rounds (for generic S106 contributions) or the projects that have been allocated funding through one of these rounds, contact S106fundingrounds@cambridge.gov.uk.
How S106 funding makes a difference
Every ward in Cambridge has benefitted from S106-funded new or improved facilities, including community meeting rooms, play areas, open spaces, sports facilities, and public art.
