DCN has responded to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Planning’s inquiry into England’s developer contributions system:
“Councils need a developer contribution system that is more transparent, efficient, effective and where there is less scope for disagreement, negotiation and revision after the fact. It must enable infrastructure to be delivered when it is needed for the development, rather than at a later point in time, to avoid overburdening infrastructure elsewhere.
We need a system that delivers sufficient contributions to cover the infrastructure requirements from all developments.”
