The following explanations explain the state of the document as county policy and provide information on the application of the document: We expect developments (commercial and private) to be part of the planning process in Northamptonshire. This is done to achieve modal shift goals in the county. The following templates define the desired structure and content of the travel plans expected for approval by the borough council. Planning bonds are the mechanism by which land developers contribute to the provision of facilities and infrastructure to support Northamptonshire`s growth. These planning commitments are guaranteed in a document called a Section 106 agreement. This document provides clear guidance for the borough council`s approach and ensures that new developments play an equitable role in providing the infrastructure and services needed to facilitate and support new municipalities. The templates follow the guidance of the Ministry of Transport below and serve as a definitive guide to meet the County Council`s expectations: the County Council`s Development Management Department prepares an annual report on developer contributions and Section 106 on behalf of education, libraries, firefighters and rescue. These reports allow the borough council to openly and transparently manage the work carried out and the means guaranteed by the development process: for the borough council services to continue to operate effectively, it is often necessary for developers to contribute to the district`s infrastructure. This could take the form of money or physical works. The document was formally adopted by cabinet in January 2015 as borough council policy.
This section will be updated regularly to include all future annual reports as soon as they are completed. The new residential areas of Northamptonshire are having an impact on existing County Council services. This could take the form of increased traffic on our roads or additional students attending schools.

No contributions are required for secondary education. We also manage the work on an application case for large events. The Silverstone circuit is an example of how the fusion of data in the oneTRANSPORT platform allows the development of new solutions that will benefit circuit visitors, the local economy and people who use the surrounding local and strategic routes on busy race days. Further efforts must be made to harness the potential of new technologies to make better use of network capacity and to enable all users to make smart decisions to reduce the negative effects of travel.
This is exactly what we are doing in Northamptonshire by developing the smart commuter concept.
