Background Information: The Council uses S106 funding to mitigate the impact of development by improving local facilities in Cambridge. Whilst S106 funding secured from developers since April 2015 is for specific projects, there is still scope for the Council to prioritise the use of the remaining, generic S106 contributions (agreed prior to April 2015) on eligible project proposals. With inputs from the Streets & Open Spaces service, the report will provide an update on the current availability of generic and specific S106 funds for play area, open space, public realm and public art categories. The process for deciding future public art projects will be set in the context of the Public Art Strategy (being developed). More details about the Council's use of S106 contributions can be found at www.cambridge.gov.uk/S106.
