The Council will not accept and conclude an agreement s106 unless it is satisfied that the agreement is in accordance with the law. In this context, it will evaluate each draft agreement and negotiate, if necessary, amendments. The Commission collects a fee for legal costs related to the preparation and establishment of agreements in accordance with Section 106. The current standard fee is $400 (which is currently under review), but will increase the complexity of the agreement. An estimate of the royalties is given by the Council`s legal counsel on the first instruction of the planning officer. After their creation, they are a legal burden on the ground, should be registered in the local register of basic royalties and will bind the buyers succeeding the land concerned. The balance between the use of S106 and CIL will vary depending on the type of territory and the type of development. There are other guidelines for the balance between s106 and CIL, which are set out in the April 2014 ILC guidelines: such an agreement requires the new owner to comply with the terms of the s106 agreement as long as they are not yet concluded. Several objections are opposed in principle: the planning planning (modification and relief of planning obligations) in 1992 defined the application procedure for amending planning obligations, including standard forms. The principles of amending an obligation are that they “no longer fulfill any useful purpose” or that they “continue to serve a useful purpose as well.” If the s106 is not respected, it is enforceable against the person who entered the undertaking and against the subsequent owner. The s106 may be imposed by omission. The use of planning obligations is subject to the fundamental principle that the building permit cannot be purchased or sold. It is therefore not legitimate for an unacceptable development to be allowed because of the benefits of a developer.

Similarly, planning obligations should never be used solely as a means of securing a share of development benefits for the local community. Planning obligations (also known as s106 agreements) are considered local land royalties and should be disclosed in local research prior to contract exchange. If the research reveals a land planning obligation, careful consideration should be given to whether the obligations have not yet been met, since if the developer is late in payment, the local planning authority (APA) may be able to sue future owners to ensure compliance with the Section 106 agreement. The answer is therefore “yes” unless an exclusion clause applies. Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) The government`s department responsible for planning, local government, housing and regional development. As part of the review of a development application, section 106 of the Planning Act 1990 allows local authorities to negotiate with developers certain construction work, restrictions or contributions to a number of infrastructure and services.
