This guidance note forms non-statutory guidance to supplement the policies and proposals of the City of York Local Plan Incorporating the 4th Set of Changes.
The purpose of the note is to advise developers of the process involved in dealing with an application that requires a legal obligation to be entered into for say, affordable housing at a site or for a contribution to local education provision. Policy GP 13 (Planning Obligations) states:-
''Where appropriate, the Council will expect developers to enter into planning obligations to provide for the infrastructure, archaeological, environmental and other significant consequences of a proposed development. Appropriate financial contributions will be sought from developers towards integrated public transport and other green mode linkages, and necessary community facilities, relevant to planning, directly related to the proposed development, and fairly and reasonably related in scale and kind to the proposed development, overcoming or mitigating against the effects or deficiencies resulting from the proposed development.''
