A planning obligation is a legal agreement between the planning authority, the applicant/developer and anyone else that has an interest in the land when a planning application is approved.
'Section 106 Agreements' and 'Unilateral Undertakings' are types of Planning Obligation authorised by Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
An obligation either requires the developer to do something or restricts what can be done with land following planning permission being granted.
We register these obligations as Local Land Charges. They are executed as deeds so you may need to employ a planning agent or a solicitor to act on your behalf.
Failure to complete an agreement means that planning permission will be refused.
