Charges for Section 106 Agreements

The Council operates a system of recharging applicants, owners and developers the cost of administrative and legal work involved with the preparation, negotiation and execution of Section 106 Agreements or Unilateral Obligations - (known as Planning Obligations under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 - as amended).


Planning permissions are sometimes granted subject to a Planning Obligation which can restrict the development or use of land in a specified way, require specified operations or activities to be carried out, require the land to be used in a specified way or require a sum or sums to be paid to the Council.

All fees must be paid before completion of the subject Deed/Agreement and the release of the related planning permission.

Upon receipt of instructions from Development Management, Legal Services will advise applicants of the estimated fees.
