Strategic Transport Fund Update

The Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Planning Authority (SDPA) submitted proposed statutory supplementary guidance to Scottish Ministers in early May 2015 in relation to the Strategic Transport Fund. The policy has been operating on a non-statutory basis since 2012 and has secured contributions of over £20m towards essential transport infrastructure required to accommodate the traffic generated by new development.

The SDPA received notification earlier this month that it can proceed to adopt the guidance. A copy of the letter received from Scottish Ministers is attached below.

Scottish Ministers Statutory Guidance Direction (Strategic Transport Fund) 2015

The SDPA meet on 25 June and will consider the adoption and implementation of the statutory guidance, which is expected to come into force in August 2015. 

Also published today are updated contribution levels for the implementation of the current non-statutory guidance. These provide contribution levels uprated by the RICS Building Cost Information Service All In Tender Price Index for 2015/16 and will come into force with immediate effect.
