Developer contributions for commuted payments for new provision/ enhancement of POS and 20 years maintenance

Provision rates – summary notes

The following figures give the commuted sum rates for enhancement of existing POS and provision of new POS within Warwick District including a maintenance payment for 20 years. They are based on the 2018 rates (to be updated annually in line with RPI indexation) for laying out a new POS, as appropriate by category and its associated maintenance. They are calculated by multiplying the provision standards in this SPD by the cost of laying out and maintaining per hectare (Ha). New provision includes a land value of £21K per hectare , as an additional cost for providing the facility, but otherwise is identical to the cost of enhancement1

An uplift of 10% to cover the delivery and management of enhancement and new provision projects will be included in line with the Landscape Institute's guidance.


Cost per dwelling size

Prices are based on a cost per person, rounded up to the nearest pound.
