Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 313

Received: 05/01/2010

Respondent: Natural England

Representation Summary:

Natural England supports the use of S106 Obligations (or CIL once this is in place) in order to ensure the funding of necessary supporting infrastructure and/or the provision of appropriate long-term site management.

We note that several of the priority areas (eg Transport - walking and cycling routes; Community Facilities - open space; Natural Environment - habitat mitigation + implementation of 'Green Grid') could also, in many instances, be considered jointly as part of a network of multi-functional green infrastructure. We would therefore recommend that the Council should produce and formally adopt a district-wide Green Infrastructure Strategy at its earliest convenience.
