Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Requirements for Section 106 alongside the Community Infrastructure Levy

The pdf icon Planning Obligations SPD [813kb] sets out our approach for securing contributions and requiring obligations from development, alongside the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This approach is in accordance with national CIL Regulations and the council's pdf icon CIL Regulation 123 List [56kb].

The SPD provides guidance to landowners, developers and West Berkshire residents.

Developer contributions may be sought, via Section 106 agreements and other statutory measures, in order to provide for additional facilities and infrastructure demands as a result of new development.

Adoption of the SPD

The pdf icon Planning Obligations SPD [813kb] was formally adopted by the council on 11 December 2014, following a period of consultation which took place in summer 2014. The pdf icon Statement of Consultation [159kb] sets out details of all the consultation responses and any changes made to the SPD as a result. The pdf icon Adoption Statement [16kb] is also available.

The Planning Obligations SPD will apply to planning applications or appeals determined on or after 1 April 2015.

Please note that the current Delivering Investment from Sustainable Development SPD will continue to apply to applications and appeals determined up to 1 April 2015.
