Local planning authorities are expected to use all funds they receive under planning obligations, in accordance with the provisions of the Individual Planning Commitment Contract. This will ensure that new developments are acceptable from a planning point of view; local authorities and helping to make local infrastructure available. A Section 106 agreement is an agreement between the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and the contractor to provide additional construction work near construction, but not part of their proposals, to provide the necessary infrastructure to directly mitigate the impact of a proposal. Section 106 Agreements are negotiated between the local authority and the developer and can pay for everything from new schools or clinics to roads and affordable housing. Funding is provided by developers and is provided by municipalities as part of the planning process for new developments. Local planning authorities are encouraged to cooperate with relevant (and if applicable, national) local infrastructure providers, infrastructure providers and managers when reviewing planning obligations to avoid delays in the planning obligations agreement. For two-tier councils, this should include county councils that provide services such as education. Borough councils may also be legal advisors as part of the plan application process, as shown in Table 2 of the Planning Guides. Planning obligations in the form of Section 106 and section 278 agreements should only be used when unacceptable effects cannot be remedied by a planning condition. In addition, as a result of the Ministerial Statement on Start-Up Homes, the guideline states that LPAs should not seek contributions to affordable housing development for affordable housing (but may still target s106, which will mitigate the impact on development). In some cases, it may be useful to consider cooperation agreements to use the expertise of officials from other local planning authorities or contractual agreements to call on outside experts, so that planning obligations can be agreed quickly and effectively. Local planning authorities and developers can discuss the provision of additional resources to enable a rapid definition of planning obligations, for example. B in the processing of important and possibly detailed planning requests.
With respect to developer contributions, the Community Infrastructure Tax (CIL) did not replace the Section 106 agreements, which strengthened the s 106 tests. S106 agreements on developer contributions should focus on correcting the specific weakening required for a new development. CIL was designed to address the broader effects of development. There should be no circumstances in which a developer pays CIL and S106 for the same infrastructure for the same development. The terms of contributions to the shuttle should be part of discussions between a developer and a local planning authority and reflected in any planning commitment agreement. Agreements should include clauses indicating when the local planning authority should be informed of the completion of units as part of development and when funds should be disbursed. Both parties can use the issuance of a planning certificate (a certificate of completion when issued by a local authority and a certificate of approval issued by a certified inspector) as a trigger for payment. While this proposal is likely supported by developers who might be able to reduce total it liability and have fewer current website obligations than we would normally see in s106 agreements, it is unclear how this will work in practice. The authorities can also account for contributions (monetary or direct provisions)
