If you want to submit a Section 106 agreement as part of your planing application, you need to send us a Section 106 request form.
You can find out what form to complete and how much you need to pay on our Section 106 agreements and unilateral undertakings pages.
We cannot determine your planning application until we have received a completed S106 agreement. If you cannot achieve this in 8 or 13 week life of the planning application, we will not grant you planning permission.
When we receive your request, our S106 officer will:
- check you have paid the right amount
- draft you section 106 agreement
- send it to you or your solicitor
Returning the Section106 agreement
Before you return the Section 106 agreement, you must make sure it is it must be signed by:
- all landowners
- anyone with a legal interest in the site
- any lenders who have an interest in the site
If there is a mortgage on the site, the mortgage company must execute the agreement.
Once all parties have signed the agreement, you can return it, along with any outstanding legal fees to our Development Management team as part of your planning application.
Costs and fees
You must pay the balance of any legal fees when you submit your Section 106 agreement as part of your planning application.
You will need to pay a £300 monitoring fee
When we complete the Section 106 agreement, you will have to pay us a £300 monitoring fee. This allows us to:
- effectively monitor the start of the development work
- collect the financial contributions
- monitor that you are complying with the agreement
For residential annexes we need the fee to monitor:
- future occupation
- changes of ownership
There is an additional monitoring fee of additional fee of £300 for every additional obligation trigger in the agreement.
If we refuse your planning application after you have completed the agreement and paid the monitoring fee, we will hold the fee for:
- six months or
- until the outcome of a planning appeal
After this you can ask us to refund the monitoring fee to you
