Planning obligations

Section 106

Section 106s are an agreement between the council and a developer, where the developer agrees to provide contributions to offset negative impacts caused by a development.

Planning obligations are legal contracts made under Section 106 of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act. They are generally entered into by agreement between councils and landowners, although a landowner may also offer a unilateral, one-sided Section 106 obligation. More information on S106 and planning obligations can be found via the planning practice guidance.
