Infrastructure Plan (IP)

The Infrastructure Plan is a key document in helping to ensure that infrastructure is identified and planned for alongside new development.

The Infrastructure Plan provides information for the new Local Plan, and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

The key purposes of the Infrastructure Plan are to:

  • Inform Site Allocation policies in the Local Plan
  • Help deliver proposed development in the Local Plan (by identifying the required supporting infrastructure)
  • Inform a review of CIL and the spending process

At present, this is an interim Infrastructure Plan. Preparation of an Infrastructure Plan is iterative, relying on information from other evidence base and infrastructure documents, dialogue with stakeholders, site promoters and infrastructure providers, and consultation responses at all key stages of the plan making process.

A further iteration of the interim Infrastructure Plan will be published alongside the next Local Plan consultation (regulation 19 stage), scheduled for summer 2019.
