Section 106 Agreement Greenwich

Every member and member of the public can consult any S106 agreement to see what it is being spent on. RE CIL, if the mayor`s share drops RBG can`t just increase their share, they have to go through different processes and audits to do so – including independent review. Section 106 payments are legal agreements that are attached to the building permit in order to mitigate the impact of a development on a territory. It received £4.7 million in the last financial year – £1.1 million was paid to Greenwich Local Labour and Business, a placement and training placement business run by the Council. The planning obligations under section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended), known to all as the s106 agreements, are a mechanism that makes a development proposal acceptable from a planning perspective that would otherwise not be acceptable. They focus on reducing the impact of development per site. S106 agreements are often referred to as “developer contributions” as well as Levy highway contributions and community infrastructure. In addition, the guidelines specify that, following the Ministerial Declaration on Start Houses, NPPs should not strive to contribute to affordable housing under Section 106 of the Start-up House Development (but may still aim for s106, which mitigates the development impact). Both Labour and Tory constituencies score better in terms of spending money and the public circuit. I give the example of Southwark above. A working committee that regularly integrates S106 agreements and allocations into the agenda of planning meetings. Greenwich have never done that.

Southwark provides money for the improvement of parks and properties, apart from their local pot (which is also larger than Greenwich) under CIL and also for S106. Greenwich spends almost nothing on the property. That year, they received an additional £3,143,365.39. During the year, they spent £2,496,945.96. Almost everything was sunk into the cost of Crossrail station in Woolwich as part of an agreement that built the station. The legal tests for when you can use an s106 agreement are set out in Regulations 122 and 123 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, as amended. The planning body of the Royal Borough of Greenwich has removed a clause from an s106 agreement to prevent future residents of a residential area intended for land adjacent to an ad hoc wharf from pursuing claims of nuisance or noise damage after receiving legal advice that it was illegal. In the last financial year, new agreements concluded under Section 106 totalled GBP 1,715,888. Revenue from previous agreements paid to the Council in 2018/2019 amounted to GBP 4,767,723. Expenditure during the year amounted to £2,592,864. the Government in response to its consultation on measures to expedite negotiations and the S106 agreement; and contribution to affordable and student housing has made substantial changes to the Planning Policy Guidelines (PPG), particularly section S106, but also to related areas, including the Sustainability Guidelines.

The planning obligation is a formal document, a document indicating that it is a planning obligation, the relevant land, the person giving the commitment and his or her interest, as well as the competent local authority that would enforce the commitment. . . .
