Standard 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. We have committed to publicising this upfront so applicants are clear what documentation we require them 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. We do not envisage entering into dialogue with applicants with regards to amendments to the main body of the obligation, other than removing references which are plainly not applicable, as the template has been agreed by the County Council and other planning authorities.
