Heads of Terms
Some planning permissions are subject to a section 106 agreement securing contributions towards local infrastructure.
In order to expedite the determination of planning applications the applicant is required to submit a completed Heads of Terms template alongside the planning application such that, in the event the decision maker requires a section 106 agreement, then legal services may be instructed without unnecessary delay.
The District Council has created 2 Heads of Terms templates which are available below.
The first template covers planning applications of between 3 and 10 dwellings AND where the gross combined floorspace does not exceed 1000 square metres. These applications are required to provide affordable housing.
The second template covers planning applications of 11 dwellings or more OR applications where the gross combined floorspace does exceed 1000 square metres. These applications are required to provide affordable housing and may also be required to provide financial contributions towards such infrastructure as public open space, indoor community space, early years, primary education, secondary education etc.
