Infrastructure Requirements

Infrastructure Delivery Plan

As part of the work being undertaken to support the Development Plan for the area, initially for the Core Strategy and lately for the Site Allocations DPD, the Council has prepared an Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP).

The IDP sets out what new infrastructure is required to meet the levels of growth proposed in the Core Strategy, including details of where and when the infrastructure will be provided, who it will be provided by and how it will be funded.

The IDP is a 'living draft', updated regularly as specified by policy CS16 in the Core Strategy, as and when new information becomes available. The IDP was first drafted in 2011, was then updated in 2018, and most recently in 2021 to reflect new information. The latest IDP also supports the emerging Site Allocations DPD by identifying infrastructure requirements that relate to specific site allocations, and to broad areas identified for future development. 

The latest version of the IDP, adopted in February 2022, can be downloaded below. The Schedule of Infrastructure Delivery Requirements is included at Chapter 3, and forms an 'executive summary' of requirements.

Infrastructure needs have also been assessed in other supporting documents, such as the Playing Pitch and Outdoor Facilities Strategy and Action Plan, the Thames Basin Heaths SPA Avoidance Strategy, and the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan.

The previous versions of the IDP can be accessed below:

Early research

Research was undertaken to provide a strategic assessment of infrastructure requirements that have a spatial implication arising from new development in support of the Council's Core Strategy first submission. It should be noted that these documents are for historic information only, and have since been superceded by the IDP (above).
