The planning manager and Supervisor S106 is responsible for concluding all agreements before the planned work begins. Local planning authorities are encouraged to use and publish standard forms and documents to support the planning obligations agreement process. This could include standard agreements and clauses (including those already published by other agencies) that could be made public to support the planning process. Any other information required by the local planning authority or any questions raised by the applicant regarding planning obligations must be addressed at an early stage of the plan application process. The use of standard agreements does not eliminate the requirement for local planning authorities to check, on a case-by-case basis, whether a planning obligation is required to make development planning acceptable. In the event of a general increase in the base area in the proposed construction, the local planning authority should calculate the amount of affordable housing contributions that are required for construction, as indicated in its local P plan. A "credit" should then be applied to the gross floor area of all relevant unlivable buildings, which are recovered or demolished under the scheme and deducted from the total cost of affordable housing. This applies to the calculation of the number of affordable housing units to be made available for development or in the case of an equivalent financial contribution. Planning obligations run with the land, are legally binding and enforceable.
A unilateral company cannot hire the local planning authority because it does not participate. Plans should be informed by evidence of infrastructure and affordable housing needs and a proportionate assessment of profitability, which takes into account all relevant policies, as well as local and national standards, including the impact of the Community Infrastructure Tax (ITC) and planning obligations.
