Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 311

Received: 05/01/2010

Respondent: Highways Agency

Representation Summary:

The Highways Agency welcomes proposals to pool contributions from a number of developments which share facilities in Southend-on-Sea. Paragraph 2.19 states that these contributions will be pooled towards wider projects. Whilst the Highways Agency is broadly supportive of this approach, in order to maximise sustainable travel it is recommended that a proportion of developer monies should be set aside to help fund local sustainable transport initiatives.
