All planning authorities, including the county, district and borough councils, have worked together to produce a countywide guide to developer contributions.  It is not definitive and is in the process of being updated but it will give you an idea of what contributions will be expected.

Developer contributions are funded through either S106 Contributions, or the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), further information can be found in the Developers Guide.
