Issue details

Implementation of the updated Staffordshire County Council Education Infrastructure Contributions Policy (SEICP)

Legislation requires that housing development should mitigate its impact on community infrastructure, including schools. “Developer contributions” towards new school places should provide both funding for construction and land where applicable. Following the publication of new Department for Education (DfE) guidance on "Securing developer contributions for education", the team established a policy working group to update the current policy. If adopted, the updated policy “Staffordshire Education Infrastructure Contributions Policy (SEICP)” will enable additional developer contributions, for funding for construction and land, to be secured towards the provision of Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) places, home to school travel (mainstream) and home to school travel (SEND).
