When any new development is considered in Woodchurch, your Parish Council has the opportunity to request a S106 agreement between the applicant seeking planning permission and the Local Planning Authority (Ref www.gov.uk/guidance/planning-obligations). The agreement provides for a legal framework to secure both financial and non-financial contributions from a development. Projects usually focus on additional infrastructure to support new housing growth (e.g., sports buildings, recreational sites, spaces, improvements to services, etc). Once a sum has been requested (based on evidence) it can then only be spent on that specific project.
To this end, your Parish Council is currently developing a register of potential S106 projects and would like to invite the residents of Woodchurch to submit suitable project suggestions.
Please use the form below to provide your input for possible future Section 106 projects.
