*What is a section 106 agreement?

Section 106 of the Town and County Planning Act, 1990, relates to monies paid by developers to local planning authorities in order to offset the costs of the external effects of development.
For example, if a developer were to build 100 new houses, there would be impacts on local schools, roads etc., with which the local authority would have to deal. In that situation, there might be a Section 106 agreement as part of the planning permission. The developer might agree to make a contribution towards the provision of new classrooms.
A Section 106 agreement will also set out the obligations a developer must meet in relation to the provision of affordable housing that is required in respect of any development.
Under the new Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulations, which came into effect on 18.05.15, every developer of any size now pays a certain amount per square metre towards the funding of infrastructure to support growth. The rate charged by Wiltshire Council for developments in Westbury is significantly lower than most parts of Wiltshire; Westbury Town Council objected to this during the CIL enquiry. CIL replaces a number of section 106 contributions but not all.
