Supplementary Planning Documents
Adopted Planning Obligations SPD
Following a period of consultation, the Council adopted its revised Planning Obligations Supplementary Document (SPD) on 7 August 2018.
Planning obligations, commonly known as Section 106 agreements, can be used to make a development acceptable in planning terms that would not otherwise be acceptable through the provision of in-kind and financial contributions towards infrastructure.
The SPD sets out detailed guidance on the Council’s planning obligation requirements including affordable housing. It is hoped that the SPD will provide assistance to those considering submitting planning applications for major development in Derby.
We are required to publish an Adoption Statement as part of the adoption of the SPD.
The Statement of Consultation Report (SPD) details the consultation methods we used when inviting comments on the SPD, the responses received and how we have taken them into account in preparing the document for adoption.
The SPD contains contribution rates for 2018/19. Each year, contribution rates will be increased by the Retail Price Index (RPI). The list will be updated each financial year.
Appendix B Financial Contributions Matrix 2020-21 details the current contribution rates.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) regulations were amended in 2019 and introduced a requirement to provide an annual report on planning obligations and CIL receipts and expenditure. The document is to be known as the Infrastructure Funding Statement.
The Council is not a CIL charging authority, so the Statement is only required to cover infrastructure secured through Section 106 agreement planning obligations. The Infrastructure Funding Statement 2019-20 is the Council’s first Infrastructure Funding Statement and covers the financial year 2019/20.
The Nature Conservation Strategy SPD
The Revised Derby Nature Conservation Strategy SPD gives details of how the natural history of the city will be conserved.

The Rykneld Road Housing Development SPD gives more detailed guidelines on the development of this site for housing.
The Manor Kingsway Hospital SPD

Community Infrastructure Levy
We are not intending to prepare a Community Infrastructure Levy charging schedule at the present time. The Implementation team can provide further information if required.
Revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)
The Revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how you can get involved in the production of our planning policies and the determination of planning applications:
- Revised Statement of Community Involvement Adopted July 2017
- Revised Statement of Involvement Consultation Report
The SCI was formally adopted by the Council on 20 July 2017. It is being reviewed to take account of the UK General Data Protection Regulation.
In response to recent modifications to the Planning Practice Guidance, we have published a Revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) - COVID-19 Addendum. This does not replace the adopted SCI but sets out the temporary measures we have put in place to protect the public and officers during the coronavirus pandemic.
These measures make sure that, wherever possible, you will be able to engage with Planning Officers and make your views known while we meet the requirements of relevant regulations.
Local Development Scheme (LDS)
The Local Development Scheme Version 7 (LDS) is a three-year project plan for preparing new planning policy documents.
The LDS has been updated to reflect the adoption of the DCLP1, work being undertaken to prepare the Part 2 Local Plan and other planning policy documents.
Authority Monitoring Report
The Authority Monitoring Report 2019 contains information on how we are performing in terms of document production, implementing policies and how well our planning policies are being achieved.
Each year the Council prepares an Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) to provide updates on progress with the preparation and implementation of planning policy documents, including the Local Plan. The AMR also includes monitoring information to help assess the progress and effectiveness of policies in our Development Plan made up of the Derby City Local Plan Part 1 (2017) (DCLP1) and the Saved Policies of the City of Derby Local Plan Review (2006). It also reports progress on key projects and development sites.
The impact of the Covid19 global pandemic has meant we are taking a slightly different approach to this years AMR. Due to national lockdown, staff re-deployment to assist in the Covid effort and the furloughing of partners we normally rely on form information, this years AMR will be a ‘slimmed down’ version. It still sets out, on a topic by topic basis, key information on the delivery of housing, employment and green infrastructure. It also contains key information on retail and the health of the City Centre. Where Covid 19 has affected any of our monitoring activities these are clearly set out in each paper. We hope to return to a fuller version of the AMR for the 2020/2021 monitoring period.
