There are a number of documents available to inform and guide you through the Section 106 (S106) process. Alternatively, you can contact the Planning Officer dealing with your application.
Policies on our S106 requirements are set out in a number of planning policy documents, such as the Unitary Development Plan (UDP), Development Plan documents, Supplementary Planning Documents and Supplementary Planning Guidance. You can also find information relating to our consultation on the Birmingham Development Plan (the replacement of the UDP).
There are two specific Supplementary Planning Documents outlining the contributions required for all new residential developments.
This sets out our policy for funding public open space in new residential developments over 25 units.
This document sets out our policy for requesting affordable housing in new residential developments of 15 or more units.
Other Useful Documents
To speed up the process, we have prepared a draft model legal agreement template. Please note this template is subject to change.
Your S106 agreement also contains some standard forms which should be returned to us at various stages of the development being constructed. These are:
S106 Payment Form/Remittance Advice – a form to be submitted by developers with S106 payments
S106 Implementation Notice – a form to be submitted by developers giving notice of their intention to start construction on site
