Infrastructure delivery plan

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan identifies the current infrastructure provision in South Gloucestershire.

The National Planning Policy Framework (paragraph 57) requires that local authorities through Local Plans should plan positively for the development and infrastructure required in the area.

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan identifies the current infrastructure provision in South Gloucestershire, and where possible taking into consideration funding uncertainties and shorter timescales of partner infrastructure providers, the critical infrastructure necessary for the delivery of the Core Strategy over the plan period including funding gaps.

The plan is a ‘living document’ and will therefore be updated periodically to reflect emerging information. It comprises two parts. Part I is a summary matrix of all planned infrastructure priorities, schemes and expenditure as can reasonably be foreseen and Part II comprises a series of documents that explain how provisions within the Infrastructure Delivery Plan have been arrived at. Using available information, they explain the statutory and policy basis for why and how infrastructure is funded and delivered, the current position within South Gloucestershire (at the time of writing) and requirements to support growth as proposed in the Core Strategy (Dec 13).
