At least 70 per cent. of planning-gain supplement (PGS) revenues would be returned to the local planning authority from which the planning permission was granted, and to which the PGS liability was attached. The Budget announced that the remaining share of all PGS revenues raised in a region would be returned to that region. Regions would have access to a fund for spending in support of regional infrastructure priorities in pursuit of the objectives identified in regional spatial strategies (RSSs).
