Section 106 agreements can also be called S106 agreements or planning obligations or planning agreements in Section 106, but they are currently all the same and can be interpreted as equivalent terms. The other scenario is to reapply for a new planning application for an identical development already authorized, but with another S106 or UU agreement. A new building permit necessarily requires a new S106 or UU agreement that replaces the existing agreement. There is no planning fee to pay if the new application is submitted within 12 months of the last decision to approve the plan. A structure application can be a cost-effective alternative to a detailed application. Before doing so, you must consider other changes that may have been made to the Planning Directive.

The application is paid for, but offers an inexpensive way to replace existing S106 or UU agreements. An S73 planning application, after authorization, establishes a new building permit next to your existing agreement and a new S106 agreement or amendment s. In this process, it is a matter of replacing one obligation with another, not by appeal. Your existing S106 agreement may contain words that extend the agreement to future S73 applications.

In these circumstances, we recommend a new planning application as the only realistic route, as LPAs are often very reluctant to release existing commitments. Section 106 (S106) Agreements are legal agreements between local authorities and developers; These are linked to planning authorities and can also be characterized as planning obligations.

S106A provides for a more formal schedule that requires a decision in 8 weeks.
