Published in 2010, this Essex County Council guide outlines the (Section-106 agreement) infrastructure levies that ECC expects district councils to apply to developers building new homes. It was created because of “concerns about inadequate infrastructure” obligations as a part of new development.
Of particular significance is the pupil/schools calculation on page 23.

ECC have a simplified model for calculating the majority if developer contributions to the infrastructure that the county is responsible for. The details are in their guide (above) but in summary the levies per new home are:
|Contribution area||ECC levy per new home|
|Education (Pre=School.Primary, Secondary, 6th Form)||£8,822|
|Archive & Record Keeping||£53|
|Adult Social Care||£241|
|Greenspace Land Allocation||£513|
|Subtotal per new home||£10,854|
Highway obligations are determined on a site-by-site basis because each location has specific and different highways needs.
