Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 307

Received: 05/01/2010

Respondent: Renaissance Southend Ltd

Representation Summary:

In setting out the Sustainable Communities Criteria the SPD makes a number of very
generalised statements in Section 2 that are not supported by any specific evidence of what is
needed or required in Southend and how any contributions from s1 06 obligations will be used to deliver facilities or mitigate impact. This may undermine the Council's ability to seek future
contributions. Sections 3 and 4 provide helpful and pragmatic advice on the s106 process and there may be a case for separating this out from the policy context and justification in sections 1 and 2, together with the detailed affordable housing and costs of administration.
