Changes To Section 106 Agreements

The Planning White Paper (PWP) proposes: Section 106 and the Community Infrastructure Tax at the local level (the PWP proposes to maintain the ILC mandated by the Mayors of London/Regional Mayors) is replaced by a single infrastructure tax (IL), i.e. the Community Infrastructure Tax (ILC) has not replaced the Section 106 agreements, the introduction of the CIL resulted in a tightening of the tests of 106. S106 agreements on developer contributions should focus on correcting the specific weakening required for a new development. CIL was designed to address the broader effects of development. There should be no circumstances in which a developer pays CIL and S106 for the same infrastructure for the same development. On Tuesday, November 17, judicial review of changes to the government`s changes to the classification of uses and new licensed development rights was rejected. The High Court ruled that the amendments had been made legally, a judgment that has the right: community:… An agreement to amend or implement a planning obligation can be concluded at any time (and can only be concluded by the budget covered in Section 106A (2). Therefore, a s106 agreement can be renegotiated and varied at any time between the parties. DCLG has published a guide to support changes to the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013, which provides more detailed information on what is needed to modify and evaluate requests to amend the accessibility system in section 106.

It is a guide to the form of the application, complaint and evidence; evidence of cost-effectiveness and how they should be assessed. In addition to the introduction of the IL, the proposals examine the prevention of the use of Section 106 agreements for infrastructure provision. Payments or the provision of, for example, open spaces, community facilities, family doctor`s offices, etc., are often guaranteed by an agreement under Section 106. Under the new regulations, it was only possible to secure them through the IL. The Growth and Infrastructure Act (paragraph 7) introduces new clauses in the s106 of the Urban Planning and Planning Act 1990, which introduces a new application and claim procedure for the review of planning obligations for planning permissions for the provision of affordable housing. The amendments require a Council to assess feasibility arguments, renegotiate the level of affordable housing previously agreed in an S106, modify the need for affordable housing, or present itself as a vocation. We have only highlighted a few points on which further clarification of the proposals is needed. Given the importance of sustainable infrastructure for development and, in particular, for the much-needed affordable housing, the development and development world will wait for a breath to see the government`s response to the ongoing consultations.
