FOI 1282
Information provided


I would like to submit the following Freedom of Information request, regarding details of 'planning gain' as part of supermarket planning applications.

Which community/local facilities have planning applicants agreed to fund, or offered to fund, under the broad term of 'planning gain' as part of supermarket planning applications that have been approved within the last five years (or have yet to be resolved, ie 'live' applications)?

For each case, which supermarket made the application and how much have they contributed or offered to contribute?


In the last 5 years, a new Tesco express store in Shepshed, Loughborough is the only supermarket planning application where a S106 agreement has been entered into.  The agreement was that the supermarket would pay £20,000 to the County Council within 21 days of the commencement of the development. This sum of money will be used to investigate and undertake possible Traffic Regulation Orders within the area. Any monies not spent within two years will be refunded.  Details of the planning application can be found on our website at:
