www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1990/8/section/106 The planner and Supervisor S106 is responsible for concluding all agreements before work begins. This legislation to verify planning agreements, which are not feasible, has now come to an end and one of the options mentioned above should therefore be used. Section 106 of the agreements are developed when it is considered that a development will have a significant impact on the territory, which cannot be mitigated by conditions related to a decision to approve the plan. The planning obligation is a formal document, a document that states that it is a planning obligation, that the lands concerned, the person who is in the obligation and their interests, and the competent local authority that would enforce the obligation, be identified. Commitment can be a single commitment or a multi-party agreement. A Section 106 agreement may be amended or unloaded to seek the assistance of a planning expert when negotiating this process. This means that royalties vary considerably from place to place and that some self-builders have had to deal with Section 106 royalties, which accounted for a significant portion of their total project cost.

Section 106 agreements can also be called S106 agreements or planning obligations or planning agreements in Section 106, but they are currently all the same and can be interpreted as equivalent terms. Beyond these rules, sustainability and the economy as a whole play a role in determining the scope and scale that an agreement should have under Section 106. Fortunately, this is not the case for all councils and a new national planning framework (expected in summer 2016) should be updated taking into account Section 106 for self-builders.
