There may be a need for a legal agreement in connection with some planning applications, in order to secure 'planning obligations' such as affordable housing, highways improvements, contributions towards improvement of local schools, etc.
The planning system aims to mitigate development impacts and where possible deliver benefits through new development. Planning Obligations are an essential way of securing contributions towards these. The purpose of the 'Planning Obligations' document is to clarify the manner in which planning obligations are used in the District. It also provides details of other Council documents that are relevant to securing contributions from developers. The document can be downloaded from the link on the right.
Please note that the document 'Developer Contributions towards Transport Schemes in Stratford-upon-Avon' referred to on page 3. of 'Planning Obligations' has been revised and adopted as a supplementary planning document (SPD). 'Provision of Open Space' is still supplementary planning guidance (SPG).
