Planning contributions and health care provision for primary care services

Cornwall Council’s planning and sustainable development department have been working in partnership with NHS Kernow and NHS England and NHS Improvement to produce a guide to planning contributions and health care provision in relation to primary care premises (PDF, 171 KB).

The guide has been developed in response to levels of growth that are proposed in Cornwall which will give rise to an increased impact on primary care services necessitating additional infrastructure, resources and funding. Where new populations are created or increased as a result of additional housing, it may be necessary for the planning system to mitigate the identified impact, subject to viability testing. This is supported by the expectations of the national planning policy framework (NPPF) and Policy 28 of the Cornwall Local Plan (PDF, 3 MB).

The guidance note sets out our position on the collection of financial contributions to help mitigate the impact of development on health care provision where need is identified. It relates only to primary care services. The note has been developed to assist the assessment of whether a need will be created as result of development and how any charge will be calculated and applied.

Contributions will only be sought where need is identified by us in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement.
