Currently, developers contribute to the company through Section 106, but unfortunately, the money is never spent in areas for which it was intended. A Council spokesperson added: “We can confirm that the funds held were collected in a timely manner and on the corresponding development triggers provided by the various legal agreements. In the Ribble Valley, $765,000 remains unused and $205,000 is not allocated. In addition, the government has asked councils in “high-demand” areas to request, in the fall 2017 budget, an increase in their borrowing limits for residential income so that they can borrow more to build homes. “The City Council has development proposals for the next five years that meet the requirement for a five-year basic service. The market runs the risk of being saturated especially in Whalley, Clitheroe and Longridge, the main urban centres where it is difficult to show a need, except in Slovaks for the elderly and rental housing. In some of our rural villages, there is an argument for small developments, including affordable housing, that will help preserve villages, keep shops, pubs, schools and communal houses open. “Industrial towns in eastern Lancashire have infrastructure, but low demand for housing, and we are the opposite, strong demand with moaning infrastructure.” Cllr Atkinson County continues: “During this time, we encouraged officers to take a much more proactive approach to 106 agreements and the collection of 106 monies. It`s possible with dividends. In the end, this is public funds that have been agreed with the developers, so it is right that this is both closely monitored and carefully managed. Chorley Council is on the largest reserve, with $8.3 million unused, followed by South Ribble Council with $4.4 million and Fylde Council with $3.922 million. “Any agreement defines what each amount can be spent on and up to what date, usually between five and ten years, and gives the Commission time to develop a comprehensive plan to ensure that contributions are spent appropriately.
The Council also revealed that it has invested $800,000 in contributions to the multi-million pound Making Homes from Homes project, in partnership with the Community Gateway Housing Association and Homes England. What he says is “the transformation of empty real estate into affordable housing, with a focus on combating homelessness. The South Ribble Council still has $4.4 million, all for projects, of which $3.17 million is earmarked exclusively for affordable housing. Other affordable buildings fell from the 20-year peak of the previous year, but were still above the 26-year average. In 2018/19, an additional 12 affordable housing units were delivered in Lancashire-12, 12 fewer than in 2017/18.
