We asked

For your views on the draft Supplementary Guidance for Developer Contributions & Affordable Housing to support Local Development Plan 2 (2019) policy 5 and policy 20.

You said

A range of comments, broadly supportive of the proposed guidance, which largely carries forward the existing Supplementary Guidance (adopted in 2020).

We did

Some changes were made to the guidance following the consultation and the finalised guidance was approved by the Environment, Infrastructure and Economic Development Committee on 20 September 2023. The revised Guidance (as presented to Committee) has now been submitted to Scottish Ministers for consideration. Further updates will be published on the Supplementary Guidance webpage for Developer Contributions & Affordable Housing.


The Developer Contributions and Affordable Housing Supplementary Guidance supports Policy 5: Infrastructure Contributions and Policy 20: Affordable Housing in the Perth and Kinross Local Development Plan 2 (2019). It includes the legal and policy background and details the contribution requirements towards Primary Education, Auchterarder A9 Junction Improvements and Transport Infrastructure. The Guidance also details the Council's Affordable Housing requirement.

 The current version of the Supplementary Guidance was adopted on 29 January 2020 and, to make sure it stays up to date, the Council has agreed that it should be reviewed. You can read the draft guidance on both Developer Contributions and Affordable Housing Below as well as a summary note of the key changes proposed.
