Record details

About this page

The Planning Obligations SPD was adopted on 20 June 2022 at Full Council.

It provides detailed guidance on policies in the Local Plan.

It replaces the January 2017 Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG).

The adopted SPD is supported by a Monitoring Fee Paper and a Schedule of Charges


The Planning Obligations SPD reflects changes to adopted policies, notably:


  • The adoption of the Harborough Local Plan in April 2019 
  • The publication of Leicestershire County Council’s new Planning Obligations Guidance in July 2019
  • National reforms to developer contributions, including the ending of pooling restrictions and clarification around seeking monitoring fees
  • Changes to National Policy including the introduction of Biodiversity Net Gain and First Homes


Consultation on the SPD was undertaken between 11 December 2020 and 5 February 2021 with a further re-consultation undertaken between 5 November 2021 to Friday 17 December 2021. The Consultation Statement sets out how responses received influenced the document.
