Planning Obligation - A Guide to Section 106 and Developer Contributions

Representation ID: 336

Received: 07/01/2010

Respondent: Sport England (East Office)

Representation Summary:

Without guidance being provided on the above matters, these matters will have to be considered on a case by case basis for every individual planning application which will be time consuming, not provide clarity/certainty to developers and the community, and the Council will be vulnerable to challenges of inconsistency and a lack of transparency. It is considered that the matters outlined above would apply to a wide range of infrastructure types, not just sport and therefore it is important that these concerns are fully considered before the SPD is adopted. Sport England has published detailed guidance on the issues that need to be considered when preparing a SPD relating to planning obligations for sport which provides detailed advice on the issues raised above.
