Housing measures generally require an alternative approach, as all dwellings can be completed at the same time. In the case of housing projects, it is often wiser to link the gradual adjustment of payments to the construction phases and the initial occupancy. Since contractors generally have three years to begin development, it may take a few years after the building permit is granted before the council obtains approval from the date of issuance. Since the Section 106 agreement is a legally binding document, the Council must ensure that the funds received are spent in accordance with the terms of the agreement. The Council`s key documents/strategies and frameworks allow the Council to identify areas where improvements to local equipment are needed. This legislation to verify planning agreements, which are not feasible, has now come to an end and one of the options mentioned above should therefore be used. Legal audits of the date of use of a s106 agreement are set out in Regulations 122 and 123 of the 2010 EU Infrastructure Tax Regulation, as amended. What are the principles to apply when an application is made? They are contained in Section 106A (6) of the 1990 Act. Essentially, the Authority can determine: the NPPG finds, in paragraph 23b-020, that a planning obligation “… can be renegotiated at any time if the local urbanization authority and the developer wish to do so” and, curiously, although it was concluded on March 15, 2019, that if there is no voluntary renegotiation agreement, an application may be made if “the planning obligation is prior to April 2010 or more than 5 years old” (emphasized). This is an outdated reference to the February 2013 land use changes (modification and relief of planning obligations) (“Modification and discharge of planning obligations”) 1992/2832 (“Amendment Regulations and Discharge 1992”), which allowed: to modify or fulfill the planning obligations in England before April 6, 2010, so that the five-year moratorium was cancelled on that date, but obviously no longer makes sense. S106 bonds can be waived in different ways depending on the stage of application. As explained in more detail below, an S73 application (section 73) can be used to remove or modify previous section 106 agreements, particularly if substantial changes in circumstances have occurred since the original agreement was signed.
In an earlier phase of the process, a cost-effectiveness report can be used to demonstrate that the Section 106 application is not viable.
