For planning applicants of major developments
By definition, a major development is defined as consisting of 11 residential units or more, or proposals with a floorspace greater than 1000 square metres.
For major developments, developers are usually required to:
- ensure that 25% of people working on the construction of the development are local residents
- create and fill one apprenticeship by a local resident for every £1m of build cost
- procure a minimum of 10% of the value of goods, services and supplies from local businesses
- employ one resident with learning difficulties or disabilities as part of a Supported Internship
Guidance on the council's requirements for employment and skills contributions can be found in Chapter 13 of the Supplementary Planning Document (PDF, 2762.17 KB).
