Section 106 Agreements

Section 106 Agreements

Some proposed developments can only be made acceptable in planning terms if the developer enters into an agreement to do or not do something on the land, or to provide some community benefit that the proposed development makes necessary. These may include affordable housing, community facilities, highways and street works.

An agreement of this kind is called a planning obligation, or section 106 agreement (named after section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990).

The negotiation of individual agreements will be carried out by the development management  teams. Three model agreements are available on the right-hand side of this page to help developers and it is encouraged that these models are used when preparing such agreements.

Electronic copies of completed planning obligations can be found by searching for the relevant planning application on the planning application search page, or by the following link.

Agreements will only be displayed once they have been signed by both parties. If you cannot find a completed planning obligation and want more information please contact the planning officer whose name will be held with the application details.

A download has been added to this page, that lists current agreements and payments made. Payments are listed by type, i.e. Affordable Housing, Public Open Space. Please be aware all payments are listed, although many of these are not available funds as they have been spent of committed. This document is updated every 6 months.
