Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 330

Received: 07/01/2010

Respondent: Southend Borough Council

Representation Summary:

These planning documents are well written and clear. They give good structure and guidance for developers on the legality, principles, processes and intentions of s.106 agreements and I believe that they will be welcomed.

I suppose that the variation and margins for developments are so diverse that any form of tabular system to provide an early guide to triggers and the likely type and quantum of contribution(s) would be unworkable? I appreciate that this may hamper negotiations on particularly unusual sites but with suitable caveats and exemptions it may be worth some thought.
