Sometimes as part of a planning permission, the developer will enter into a legal agreement. These agreements are known as section 106 agreements, unilateral undertakings or planning obligations.

These agreements can include:

  • Restrictions on the development or use of the land in a certain way
  • That certain operations or activities are carried out on the land;
  • That the land be used in a certain way;
  • That money is paid to the Council to cover all or part of infrastructure costs such as roads, schools, or community needs

The amount of any money paid will depend on the scale and type of development and will be decided when the application is made, after talks with other service providers. 

These pages include some tools that will help you find existing agreements that may affect your property and information about contributions that have been paid and where the money is being spent.

There is also information for developers to help in preparing draft agreements as part of a planning application process.

For written confirmation of the current status of a clause within an agreement and whether it has been discharged you will need to email your enquiry to the Planning Team. A fee of £40 per clause within the legal agreement is charged for this service.
