If your existing S106 agreement or unilateral commitment undermines the viability of your development, you can replace existing commitments by applying for a new building permit. These new application and appeal procedures do not replace existing powers to renegotiate section 106 agreements on a voluntary basis. In addition, with respect to affordable housing, this provision does not replace provisions to amend an obligation established by the 1992 regulations and updated by the 2013 regulations (see above). Section 106 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 provides that a local planning authority may enter into an agreement with any person interested in land in its territory to limit or regulate its development or use. An agreement within the meaning of Article 106 is a contract of engagement concluded between a real estate developer, a landowner and a local planning authority. 1) Within five years from the date of performance of the undertaking, at any time by agreement between us and the person or persons against whom the undertaking is enforceable. The usual uses of planning obligations are to ensure affordable housing and to determine the nature and date of such housing; and to ensure financial contributions to the provision of infrastructure or affordable housing. However, these are not the only uses of an s106 bond. An s106 obligation may be as follows: Section 106 agreements are usually concluded following a decision to grant a building permit by a local planning authority in order to mitigate the impact of new developments and to include provisions for securing infrastructure on and off site, financial contributions and other mitigation measures. The legal tests for when you can use an s106 agreement are set out in Regulations 122 and 123 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, as amended.
Under Planning Act s106 (A), a person bound by the obligation may request that the obligation be amended or complied with after five years. The planning obligations under section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended), known to all as the s106 agreements, are a mechanism that makes a development proposal acceptable from a planning perspective that would otherwise not be acceptable. They focus on reducing the impact of development per site. S106 agreements are often referred to as "developer contributions" as well as Levy highway contributions and community infrastructure. The balance between the use of the S106 and the CIL will vary depending on the type of area and the type of development built. Further guidance on the balance between s106 and CIL is set out in the CIL Guidelines of April 2014: a request for amendment or discharge of agreement s106 can be submitted to the local planning authority at the end of the `relevant period` and the `relevant period` is defined as five years from the start of the s106 agreement. The planning obligation is a formal document, a document indicating that it is a planning obligation, the relevant land, the person giving the commitment and his or her interest, as well as the competent local authority that would enforce the commitment. . .
