Standardised Template Section 106 Agreements
The Staffordshire local planning authorities, including the county council, have come together to produce a standardised template for section 106 agreements across Staffordshire relating to planning applications made to the Staffordshire district or borough councils.
The county and district or borough councils have committed to publicising this standardised template upfront so applicants are clear what documentation they are required to complete as part of the application process. This will reduce delays and costs for applicants and simplify the planning process.
The standard template has optional schedules which will be applied according to the nature of any proposed development.
The county and district or borough councils do not envisage entering into significant dialogue with applicants with regards to amendments to the standard template other than removing references which are plainly not applicable, as the template has been agreed by the county council and the Staffordshire district or borough council planning authorities.
