Shropshire Council Section 106 Agreements

In the early days of the initiative, applicants encountered difficulties with the policy because they could not find lenders willing to grant mortgages. As a result, Shropshire Council had to spend time with a number of lenders to explain the policies and encourage them to continue to support the projects. These include the Commission`s workshops and the development of draft contracts in accordance with Section 106 for the review and audit of lenders. The policy is popular with local people, parish councils and politics, as it has helped to increase the long-term affordable housing stock in rural areas, which promotes community sustainability. In order to help candidates and offer transparency to lenders, the Council has also published on its website a draft agreement on Model 106 for individual land. Applicants must also obtain written confirmation from the City Council/Parochial of the validity of their “local links.” The applicant is responsible for contacting the Board and, to his satisfaction, to show that he meets the criteria (for example. B proof of the history of address, school education, family ties, employment, other community ties, etc.). If the local council is satisfied with the local connection, it confirms it to Shropshire Council. Visible links 1. www.shropshire.gov.uk/access-to-i…

According to a report by Planning Officer Mark Perry, “It is considered appropriate to ensure, as part of the Section 106 agreement, the provision of parking and recreation spaces previously authorized prior to the occupation of the 40th apartment. As in the absence of such a mechanism, the applicant may build the houses and not provide additional community benefits. Web: [1] www.shropshire.gov.uk/access-zu-Information Now that the initiative has been in operation for six years, the Shropshire team has discovered a tendency for some people to design “monosequitable” houses with a large base area (and a similarly sized “attic”) above. Although permitted development rights are removed, there is sometimes a suspicion on the ground that there is potential for unregulated roof transformation to create additional space – which is why city council plans to strengthen it by preparing some policy changes. The land is available for up to 80 houses in the land allocation and development management plan (SAMDev) decided by the city council and the parish council supported the request. After careful consideration of the responses, the government announced a change in national policy with respect to the planning obligations under Section 106. The conclusion was that “the disproportionate burden on developers, on land of 10 units or less and with a maximum gross floor area of 1000 square metres, should not be directed at affordable housing and rate contributions.
