Section 106 Conditions
More and more councils are imposing conditions on construction projects regardless of the size of the project or whether it is commercial or domestic.
In London the majority of construction projects are subject to Section 106 conditions, but each borough may vary their requirements. For example, one borough may be very insistent on a local procurement strategy and plan as well as a local labour strategy and plan, whilst another may require a specific number of weeks of training / work experience / apprenticeships for local young people to be provided. Fines may be imposed if targets are not met and there is no evidence to support achievement.
Every planning authority has their own agenda in relation to areas of concern, therefore they impose many varying conditions.
Examples of this variance are:-
- Rural areas may require a bat survey, or even a full ecological survey to be carried out
- Listed Buildings works may require a Construction Environmental Management Plan
- Urban Area requirements may include a Noise, Dust and Vibration Plan, a Traffic Management Plan, Environmental Impacts Assessments, and a Site Waste Management Plan
