In the past, Havant Borough Council secured developer contributions through the use of S106 planning obligations. In April 2010 the government introduced CIL and in many cases, this will replace the use of Section 106 funds (S106).
However, S106 contributions may be sought in addition to CIL where site specific measures are required to make a development acceptable; such as affordable housing, specific highway or flood alleviation measures.
As the council adopted a CIL Charging Schedule on the 1st August 2013,
any S106 agreements will need to meet the three tests set out in the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended):
- Necessary to make the development acceptable in planning terms
- Directly related to the development and
- Fairly and reasonably related in scale and kind to the development
We are in the process of developing a S106 Toolkit.
The first element to be complete is the Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) Bonds. Please see below the example bond wording if one is necessary for your site:

S106 and Annual Monitoring
A number of S106 Planning Obligation Agreements are signed each year and form part of the planning decision for a site.
