Section 106 Negotiations
Charter House Planning can negotiate with local planners on Section 106 conditions – which could significantly reduce your financial contributions.
A section 106 agreement refers to a specific clause in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. It is sometimes attached to a planning consent and this may involve restrictions on the use of the land or a financial contribution towards affordable housing, local infrastructure and facilities.
Unfortunately, these agreements are sometimes applied without full consideration of the financial aspects of a build project or conversion. As a result, Section 106 agreements can sometimes threaten the financial viability of a development.
Getting the best deal for you
Our team is highly experienced in assessing these cases. If we believe that the level of contribution is unjustified, we can put together a robust case and detailed financial calculations to either reduce, or even remove, the financial requirement entirely.
We have recently negotiated a reduction of more than £50,000 for a client who was converting a historically significant listed building in Salisbury.
