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.

In West Berkshire, the principle is that all eligible developments must pay towards the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), as well as any site-specific requirement that is secured through Section 106 agreements.
