Planning obligations for developers

We may negotiate planning obligations with developers to offset the effects of new developments by the direct provision of new facilities or, where appropriate, by a financial contribution towards new or improved facilities and services.

Our Planning and Infrastructure Policy (PDF 1.3 MB) sets a consistent approach to planning obligations across Lancashire. It identifies the subject areas where the county council may request planning obligations and the methodology we follow to calculate them.

The individual sections of the policy can be downloaded below:
