Delivering Poole's Infrastructure sets out our planning policy framework for development to play its part in delivering infrastructure to support growth. The Development Plan Document (DPD) and its supporting documentation identify our infrastructure priorities, costs, timescales for delivery, funding streams, delivery agencies and implementation mechanisms. The DPD also provides a robust evidence and policy base to support our negotiation of Section 106 planning obligations and underpins the Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule.
In addition to the DPD is Poole's Infrastructure Programme which is a technical document providing an overview of the range of infrastructure projects required to support the Core Strategy growth. The PIP will act as a 'live' document, supporting the Core Strategy and Delivering Poole's Infrastructure DPDs, which can be updated and reviewed when required to keep track of infrastructure delivery during the plan period.
