County Meath Development Contribution Schemes
The Planning and Development Act, 2000 provides for the adoption of a development contribution scheme, which must be the basis for charging all future development contributions. The making of a development contribution scheme is a reserved function. Section 48 of the Act commenced on 11th March 2002.
The Act outlines that a planning authority,when making a grant of permission may include a condition requiring the payment of a contribution in respect of public infrastructure and facilities. The Act also indicates that
such contributions may be related to works benefiting development in the “area of the planning authority” rather than facilitating the proposed development as in Section 26 (2) (h) of the Planning and Development Act 1963.
Section 48 (1) states that such contributions may be charged “regardless of other sources of funding for the infrastructure and facilities”. This means that funding from the State and the EU is also reckonable. It is considered that since the Act no longer attributes contributions to specific developments, and treats the county as a single system, the contributions levied may fund public infrastructure and facilities throughout the county.
The Wholesale Price Index of 1.1% for 2010 has been applied to the Scheme, effective from 1st March 2011.
The Wholesale Price Index of -2.4% for 2011 has been applied to the Scheme, effective from 1st March 2012.
