Current Development Contribution Schemes

Development Contribution Scheme

The Planning and Development Acts 2000-2015 (hereafter referred to "as the Act") provides for the drawing up by a planning authority of a Development Contributions Scheme for its area of jurisdiction or for parts thereof. Such a scheme permits planning authorities, on granting planning permission under Section 34 of the Act, to include conditions requiring the payment of a contribution in respect of public infrastructure and facilities benefiting development in the area of the Planning Authority, and that is provided, or intended to be provided by, or on behalf of, the Local Authority, regardless of other sources of funding for the infrastructure and facilities.
