Worthing Planning Obligations (S106) and Standards
Worthing Planning Contributions
Planning policy requires that development should make appropriate provision of services, facilities and infrastructure to meet its own needs. This means that where sufficient capacity does not already exist to meet the need created by new occupiers or users, the development should contribute what is necessary, either on site or through a financial contribution.

Worthing Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
Although CIL is now the dominant means for securing financial contributions from development in Worthing, Planning Obligations, despite being 'scaled back', continue to play a key role in relation to affordable housing and certain site specific requirements.
Further information on both CIL and Planning Obligations and an explanation of the relationship between them is set out within a Developer Contributions SPD (linked below). The SPD also provides greater detail on the Council's affordable housing requirements.
West Sussex County Council Planning Obligations
Certain infrastructure provisions are secured through S106 agreements which relate to West Sussex County Council. For example, where there is a new development there may be a need to improve education and social care facilities. More information can be found on their website
