What infrastructure is needed?

What infrastructure is needed?

The SDNPA’s Infrastructure Business Plan 2019 and (Appendices) sets out our current understanding of what infrastructure is needed to support the growth in the National Park. It also lists those infrastructure projects we intend to fund this year as well as setting out how the money allocated in previous years has been used.  

The decision on how much to allocate to projects will be based on the money available at the end of the financial year (31 March).

This year, for the first time, we have also included within this report the Government’s new ‘Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS).  The IFS sets out how much money we have received as an Authority through CIL and S106 agreements, what it has been allocated to and what remains unspent.

These documents are updated annually. The latest version was approved by Planning Committee in November 2019.
