Local authorities have a responsibility to provide a large proportion of the infrastructure that our communities need. For example, providing and maintaining roads, schools and facilities for managing household waste.
- Hampshire Strategic Infrastructure Statement
The level of housing growth proposed for Hampshire will impact service delivery and infrastructure. This statement explains the types of infrastructure, we and our partners are responsible for planning and delivering to meet current deficiencies and future growth.
- Memorandum of understanding
The memorandum of understanding sets out a broad framework to help guide local planning authorities and us to determine priorities for the planning, funding and delivery of infrastructure. This includes both community infrastructure (such as sport facilities), and strategic infrastructure (such as flood defences). These are integral to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of Hampshire. The agreement will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary.
Our Broadband webpages provide detailed information on the Hampshire Superfast Broadband project. It includes postcode analysis for the whole County, showing the current and planned coverage for all providers.
Hampshire County Council have collaborated with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Planning Officers Group to develop guidance for Local Planning Authorities and Developers. The guidance is about the drivers and benefits of ensuring high speed broadband provision is in place on new developments. Also, the methods which they can use to achieve this.
- Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Community Infrastructure Levy is a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of the area.
CIL will be an important tool for the local authorities for funding and delivering the critical infrastructure underpinning their Local Plans. The CIL charge is based on land use and will be charged per square metre.
We are working with local authorities to help ensure they maximise the infrastructure funding opportunities associated with CIL.
