Infrastructure spending and funding
Infrastructure needed to support new development in West Oxfordshire is funded through a number of means. It is often funded through planning obligations, in the form of Section 106 (S106) contributions.
From 2021, we intend to introduce a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which will sit alongside S106 contributions. We will also look at other opportunities from different sources of funding, for example, Government funding.
The District Council’s future spending priorities for new and enhanced infrastructure in West Oxfordshire are set out in an Infrastructure Delivery Plan. The West Oxfordshire Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) 2016 (opens as a PDF) is in the process of being updated.
The Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) is a summary of all financial and non-financial developer contributions collected and spent by us.
The most recent West Oxfordshire Infrastructure Funding Statement covers the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 and can be viewed below along with the previous IFS for 2019 to 2020.
