Supplementary guidance - Developer contributions

In line with Planning Circular 3/2012 Planning Obligations and Good Neighbour Agreements Local Authorities may use agreements under Section 75 of the Town & Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 to mitigate the impact of new development on infrastructure. Where a shortfall in infrastructure capacity has been identified the impact of new development may be mitigated through a financial contribution. This allows proposed development to be acceptable in planning terms and helps provide wider benefits across Perth and Kinross.
