Student Accommodation Contributions for Bursaries

The Student Accommodation Contributions for Bursaries Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides details on the implementation of Core Strategy policy CS12, part J. This policy outlined the Council's objective for student accommodation developments to help increase access to higher and further education and tackle worklessness by providing funding for bursaries for students leaving council care or facing other hardship to attend institutions of higher and further education.

The SPD identifies the specific level of contribution which student accommodation developments will need to provide towards student bursaries.

The SPD and supporting documents are available to download at the bottom of the page.
