Planning Obligations (often referred to as developer contributions) are legal documents that require developers to undertake certain works or make financial contributions in order to mitigate the impacts of the development proposed. Planning obligations are most commonly used on residential developments where the proposed new dwellings will lead to additional demands on affordable housing, play facilities, habitats and other local infrastructure. All new developments must address the likely obligations relevant to the scale of development proposed. Most commonly, these obligations are met through a Unilateral Undertaking or S.111 Agreement. However, for more complex applications, a Section 106 (S106) agreement is required.
