Background Information: The Council has secured generic, off-site S106 funding from developers, under a range of contribution types, to help mitigate the impact of local development prior to the changes to the national regulations in 2015. An overview can be found at: www.cambridge.gov.uk/our-approach-to-s106 The availability of the generic S106 funding that still remains is limited and is unevenly spread across the city. Consistent with all previous S106 funding rounds, the 2020 generic S106 funding rounds has only been able to seek project proposals from those wards that still have S106 funding locally.
