The s106 agreement places a requirement on the Planning Obligations Board to monitor the potential effects and impacts of the Hinkley Point C Development and where appropriate to amend the funding priorities and principles in order to maximise the benefits of the CIM Fund.
The Planning Obligations Board will consider relevant information from partners, stakeholders and the community in relation to potential and actual impacts and will review the HPC CIM Fund Distribution Strategy annually.
