Developer Contributions: Section 106
Section 106 agreements and how to make a request
Section 106 agreements are legally binding agreements, entered into by individuals or groups with an interest in a piece of land (often a developer). They are used to secure the delivery of on-site infrastructure or financial obligations, which will be used to fund infrastructure improvements.
On-site infrastructure that may be provided as a result of a section 106 agreement includes:
- Affordable housing
- Public open spaces and play areas
- Habitat protection
- Access roads
Information about West Berkshire specific planning obligations can be found in our Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). You can find National Guidance on the GOV.UK website.
