We currently use section 106 agreements to secure a range of requirements in connection with planning permissions. From some time in 2015 we expect to move to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for collecting contributions towards providing infrastructure. Section 106 agreements will continue to be used for other obligations.
