Section 106 information

Last Modified June 12, 2014

We enter into a Section 106 agreement (also known as a planning obligations) with a developer when we feel it is necessary for them to provide something for the community to offset any negative impact caused by their development, or its construction.

Types of contributions can include:

  • Affordable homes
  • Community facilities (e.g. health, leisure and education facilities)
  • Greenways
  • Open space
  • Sustainable transport

The developer will either implement these or make payments to us so we can carry them out. All planning obligations must be relevant to the original development.

For more information on how we deal with planning obligations:

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

CIL is a further financial charge that local authorities in England and Wales can choose to make on new developments in their area. The money raised can only be spent on providing infrastructure to support new development. CIL can operate alongside Section 106 agreements.
