Show all parts of this guide

1. Overview

Planning obligations are agreements entered into between us and developers, usually in conjunction with the granting of planning permission. Planning obligations apply to land, binding it and whoever owns it. They are made using powers under section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, which is why they are also called "section 106 agreements".
