4. Section 106 and Section 52

A Section 106 (called Section 52 prior to 1990) agreement is a legal agreement between a developer and the local planning authority about measures that the developer must take to reduce their impact on the community.  When buying land your solicitor will want to see a copy of the Section 106 agreement and ensure that there are no clauses within it have have not been complied with and that may therefore affect you as the purchaser.

All Section 106 agreements within Teignbridge (excluding Dartmoor National Park) are plotted spatially on the My Neighbourhood Map where you can also view the agreement document.  Advice about using My Neighbourhood map is on the previous page.
