To consider a report by the Director for the Economy, attached as Item 7.


The Committee was advised a hard copy of the Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS), which had been published on the Councils’ website, had been circulated to them since publication of the agenda.  


The report had been produced to advise Members of the new Government requirement for all Councils to produce an annual IFS.  The Officer said the Government had recognised that greater transparency could be achieved through this requirement.


The Officer advised the Statement set out what money had been collected during the financial year 2019-20; what had been allocated; and what remained unspent.  Members were however, reminded that there were separate procedures for agreeing the spend of S106 monies through the relevant Executive Members or the Joint Strategic Committee.


Some Members raised queries with the Officer for further clarification, which the Officer answered in turn.


One Member requested that in the future the photograph on the front cover be more relevant to Adur District Council’s infrastructure finance.  The Officer accepted the comment.


The Officer concluded his presentation by advising that the report author, David Attmore, was the Councils’ new S106 and CIL Monitoring Officer who had been in post for a year.   




The Planning Committee Members noted the publication of the Adur Infrastructure Funding Statement 2019-20 and the accompanying Developer Contributions Data on the Council’s website.
