Sheffield City Council Section 106 Agreement

This has been forwarded to the relevant Council department and you should expect to receive a response within 20 working days. Section 106 The agreements are part of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. They enable councils to mitigate the impact of development by charging the developer for additional local services, facilities, infrastructure or environmental improvements necessitated by the influx of new people. During article 106 negotiations, the amount of affordable housing in development is often decided. The national guidelines were ashamed of the fact that local authorities and developers should aim for about 20% of the total number of units to be affordable, with an affordable definition of 80% of the market price. Applicants should keep in mind that, where a planning obligation is required, the absence of a draft contract prior to the consideration of the application by the Planning Committee may result in the refusal of the building permit in order to expedite application decisions. Please confirm that all obligations arising from the agreement under Article 106 19/12/2003 ref 03/02423/rem have been respected and paid The affordable housing model, which limits rental and sale prices to 80% of the market price, has been the coalition government`s response to the reduction of the Council/Social Housing. It should force private developers to build cheaper housing through laws contained in Section 106 agreements between the local authority and the developer. But perversely, for those in need of cheaper housing, the coalition also set up profitability assessments that allowed developers to legally circumvent obligations to pay Section 106 funds and provide affordable housing by claiming (often with overstated costs) that they would earn less than 20% if they were to build affordable housing. Where there are no municipal councils, CIL Regulation 59F requires us to use 15% of the CIL to “support the development of the area concerned”. We decided to allocate this local CIL to each municipality and use our local partnerships as a mechanism to make decisions on how the local CIL should be spent. Please note the Annex (131210 s106 income 08-13), which contains a detailed breakdown of the 418 Section106 agreements for which payments were made during the period indicated.
