10. Section 106 Agreements and CIL

Please note that the Council approved a revised Charging Schedule on Wednesday 21 October 2020.  Please also note that we will begin charging the amended rates in this Charging Schedule on all decisions made from Monday 1 February 2021. We will update these web pages in due course but if you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us.

For most residential development CIL will largely replace off-site S.106 contributions, for example, towards off-site sports provision or school places.

The Council will continue to use S.106 Agreements, alongside CIL, to secure affordable housing from residential development and essential site specific mitigation, for example on-site children’s play facilities, from residential and other types of development that are needed to enable development to proceed.

Please be aware that a habitat contribution may also be payable in addition to S.106 contributions:   Unilateral undertakings, section 106 agreements, habitat mitigation and affordable housing contributions
