What is Section 106?

Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 is a legal agreement between the applicant seeking planning permission and the local planning authority, which is used to mitigate the impact of the new homes on the local community and infrastructure. In other words, new houses will mean more cars on the roads and more impact on local services, such as schools and public transport.  Section 106 is effectively a set of planning obligations for the developer.

Any housing development that generates a net gain of 4 or more dwellings has to provide either:

• A financial contribution in lieu of on-site leisure facilities, or
• On-site leisure facilities, or
• Some on-site leisure facilities and a financial contribution.

Financial contributions are held by AVDC for spending within the Parish and must be spent on sport and leisure projects in accordance with the Section 106 (S106) wording specific to that development.

The S106 will vary depending on the nature of the development and based on the needs of the District. The most common obligations include:-

  • Public Open Space
  • Affordable Housing
  • Education
  • Highways
  • Village centre Improvements
  • Health
