Planning obligations, or section 106 agreements, are negotiations with developers that help to mitigate the impact of a development of a site, thus making it acceptable in planning terms. They are so named because they stem from section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
Section 106 agreements often include contributions by the developer to local infrastructure, most commonly affordable housing, along with the Community Infrastructure Levy.
