Section 106 Agreements, offers and payments

Peter Cox made this Freedom of Information request to Cardiff Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cardiff Council,

I would like to have details of Section 106 Agreements (or similar agreements where a developer has made a payment to the council, or agreed to make a payment as a result of, or in connection with, or as a condition of, a planning consent for development) that have been made by the Council in the period 2000 - 2010. Ideally (since I assume you keep the data in such a form) as a searchable database showing the nature of the undertaking, the date the undertaking was made or imposed, when payment was received under the agreement, and details of the development (ie Planning Application number details).

Yours faithfully,

Peter Cox

FOI, Cardiff Council

Dear Davies, Lesley,

Thank you for this information. Can you confirm that all of the developments which payment has not been received have not been undertaken. For the avoidance of doubt, that there are no Section 106 payments that have not been paid to the council - if there are any such cases perhaps you could append any explanation for non receipt of the amount.

Thanks

Yours sincerely,

Peter Cox

Dear Mr Cox

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
about Section 106 monies received on 18th April 2011.

We are considering your request under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act, you should receive the information requested within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days, unless the information is exempt
or we require additional time to consider whether disclosure is in the
public interest in accordance with section 10(3) of the Act.

Cardiff Council’s policy is to carry out the spirit and requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act in a manner which:

- recognizes the duty to inform as the essential principle underlying the
legislation;

- discloses to requesters the maximum information possible which is not
injurious to the public and private interests identified in the exemptions
in the Act and does so in the most timely and consistent manner given the
nature and scope of the request;

- ensures that fees permitted under the Act are kept to an absolute
minimum whilst safeguarding our position as a non-profit making repayment
department

We will try to supply information in electronic format by email, but if
this is not possible we will let you know. If you have any special
requirements e.g. language, audio, large print, etc. please let us know.

The Act defines a number of exemptions which may prevent the release of
information. If any exemptions apply to your information request they will
be considered prior to disclosure. If any of the exemption categories do
apply an explanation for non-disclosure will be included in the Decision
Notice response you will receive, included in this notice is your right to
appeal against our decision.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to
release the information to you. We will keep you informed if this issue
arises.

In some circumstances a fee may be payable for the information you have
requested, we will inform you of the details if and when appropriate. In
these circumstances you will have to pay the fee before we process and
release the information. The 20 working day time limit for responses will
not start until we receive your payment.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding the FOIA please do not
hesitate to contact me.

Dear Mr Cox

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 received on 18^th April 2011.

Can you confirm that all of the developments which payment has not been
received have not been under taken. For the avoidance of doubt, that there
are no Section 106 payments that have not been paid to the council

- if there are any such cases perhaps you could append any explanation for
non receipt of the amount.

We have considered your request and please find attached a spreadsheet
containing the details of instances where developments have been
undertaken and the S106 contributions have not been made as required by
the signed legal agreement.  The Council is unable to speculate on the
reason for the non-receipt of these contributions although as detailed in
the spreadsheet these are actively being pursued by the Council. 

We supply the information based on your original request.  If this
information does not answer your enquiry or if you feel we have not fully
understood your request, please contact me to clarify your exact
requirements.
