It specifically provides guidance on how the council will implement the Herefordshire Unitary Development Plan (UDP) Policy DR5 on Planning Obligations. It also identifies the types of community infrastructure where developer contributions will be sought as part of a proposed development.

This document also includes the technical data on local affordability levels, which is updated annually.
