Trafford Council Supplementary Planning Document: Planning Obligations

Development impacts on infrastructure and creates a need for additional or improved community services and facilities, without which the development would have an adverse effect in social, economic or environmental terms. This SPD proposes planning obligations to be sought from new development in the Borough in order to address these impacts and to contribute to the delivery of affordable housing. It sets out the rationale for making those obligations and the system proposed to manage and monitor the collection and spending of developer contributions.
