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 insist on a specific number of weeks of training / work experience / apprenticeships for local young people to be achieved. Fines may be imposed if targets are not met and there is no evidence to support achievement.
How can WPS help with Section 106 Conditions?
Whatever the requirement, WPS’s experienced waste management consultants can assist. We work with many councils / boroughs in London (where conditions are most stringent) and understand their requirements and how they want your evidence reported.
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” to be carried out, or even a full ecological survey
- Listed Buildings works may require a Construction Environmental Management Plan
- Urban Areas may require a Noise, Dust and Ventilation Plan, a Traffic Management Plan, Environmental impacts assessments, and a Site Waste Management Plan to name a few.
How can WPS help with Planning Conditions?
