Planning obligations under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, commonly known as s106 agreements, are a mechanism used to make a development proposal acceptable in planning terms.
They are focused on site specific mitigation of the impact of development by way of either the direct provision of infrastructure (both on and off site of the development) and through the payment of financial contributions to the local planning authority.
Reporting on developer contributions helps local communities and developers see how contributions have been spent and understand what future funds will be spent on, ensuring a transparent and accountable system.
We produce an Infrastructure Funding Statement for each financial year, showing information relating to the contributions we secured, allocated, used and retained.
