8.1 The Council will work in partnership with a range of public,
private and voluntary sector organisations to co-ordinate
investment and ensure the successful implementation and delivery
of the Local Plan Vision, Objectives and policies. To
achieve this aim, the Council will use a range of mechanisms
including masterplanning, planning performance agreements, and
formation of delivery bodies. This work will occur
both at the strategic Garden Communities level, as explained in
Part 1 of the plan, and at the more local level, as provided in
the policies and allocations for sites in Colchester set forth in
Part 2 of the Plan. The Council's Infrastructure Delivery
Plan will set out the infrastructure requirements of new
development across the Borough along with information on delivery
partners, timing and funding.
8.2 A key mechanism for implementing the Local Plan is the
consideration of planning applications through the development
management process. The Local Plan should be read as a whole and
applications for planning permission will be considered against
all relevant policies in the Local Plan and the NPPF.
8.3 The Council is assessing the Local Plan to ensure its policies
and allocation support economic prosperity and development
viability. As explained in Policy SG5, Developers will be
required to contribute towards providing and enhancing strategic
infrastructure through the Community Infrastructure Levy.
Planning obligations through Section 106 will continue to provide
funding to mitigate negative impacts relating to a specific
development. CIL will complement and not duplicate planning
