Section 106 (S106) Agreements are legal agreements between local authorities and developers; These are linked to planning authorities and can also be characterized as planning obligations. Planning obligations in the form of Section 106 and section 278 agreements should only be used when unacceptable effects cannot be remedied by a planning condition. The economic viability of a Section 106 agreement is generally based on the following factors: these agreements allow us to enter into a legally binding planning obligation with a developer in the context of the granting of the building permit. Local planning authorities are encouraged to use and publish standard forms and documents to support the planning obligations agreement process. This could include standard agreements and clauses (including those already published by other agencies) that could be made public to support the planning process. Any other information required by the local planning authority or any questions raised by the applicant regarding planning obligations must be addressed at an early stage of the plan application process. The use of standard agreements does not eliminate the requirement for local planning authorities to check, on a case-by-case basis, whether a planning obligation is required to make development planning acceptable.

Section 106 of the agreements are developed when it is considered that a development will have a significant impact on the territory, which cannot be mitigated by conditions related to a decision to approve the plan. Under the Community Infrastructure Tax Regulations, any authority that receives a development contribution through the Section 106 levy or planning obligations must prepare an infrastructure funding statement. County councils are part of it. The authorities may collect a monitoring fee in accordance with Section 106 of the planning obligations to cover the monitoring and reporting costs associated with the provision of this obligation in accordance with Section 106.
