Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) - Worthing

What is the annual Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS)?

Any local authority that has received developer contributions (section 106 planning obligations or Community Infrastructure Levy) must publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) online by 31st December 2020, and by 31st December each year thereafter. The IFS must cover the previous financial year from 1st April to 31st March.

The Infrastructure Funding Statement must consist of:

  • The infrastructure list: a report on the infrastructure projects (or types of infrastructure) which the charging authority intends may be wholly or partly funded by CIL (drawing on information included in the Infrastructure Investment Plan)
  • A CIL report: a report relating to the previous financial year on the Community Infrastructure Levy
  • A section 106 report: a report relating to the previous financial year on section 106 planning obligations

Prior to 2020, reporting of section 106 contributions and CIL receipts have been reported in the Annual Monitoring Report (Worthing). All previous reports are available to view on the Annual Monitoring Report (Worthing) webpage.

What is Developer Contributions Data?

Developer contributions include section 106 (s106) planning obligations, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), section 278 agreements and any agreements that either secure funding towards new development, or provide infrastructure as part of any new development.

There are different limitations between the 3 types of contributions in terms of how the money collected can be spent.

CIL funds must be spent on the 'provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure needed to support the development of the area'.

Section 106 contributions are required to be spent within the vicinity of, and must be directly related to, the development in question. Each s106 agreement is different and will include individual requirements as to how the contributions are spent.

Section 278 contributions are spent on any works carried out by the highway authority in relation to the public highway.

The CIL Regulations and National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local planning authorities that have received developer contributions to publish their data on a regular basis, at least once a year, and in an agreed format. Developer contributions data must be entered in three separate CSV (spreadsheet) files:

  • Developer agreements: listing all the legal agreements securing contributions from a development for infrastructure or affordable housing, and all the demand notices issued for CIL
  • Developer agreement contributions: listing the individual obligations/sums within an agreement, assigned to particular purposes, as well as the split in the CIL contribution purpose
  • Developer agreement transactions: listing whether the contribution has been received, allocated, transferred, spent or returned
