13. Contributions made by development
Melton Borough Council doesn't have to report on CIL until the CIL Charging Schedule is adopted by MBC as a Charging Authority.
The preliminary draft charging schedule was published in July 2017 and Council is currently considering responses to that consultation. It is likely that the publication of the draft charging schedule will take place about two months later than originally envisaged in the LDS.
b. Section 106
Section 106 (S106) Agreements are legal agreements between Local Authorities and developers; these are linked to planning permissions and can also be known as planning obligations.
Section 106 agreements are drafted when it is considered that a development will have significant impacts on the local area that cannot be moderated by means of conditions attached to a planning decisions.

Melton Borough S106 (2011/12 to 2016/17):
The Council has secured a total of £1,472,701 of developers contributions alongside the grant of planning permissions since 2011. In the last year £361,114.52 was secured. The contributions secured are mainly for education (£335,560.40), with significant sums also secured for transport infrastructure and open space maintenance. The value of the contributions secured in any year depends on the size and type and impacts of the developments that have been granted planning permissions, and so will be expected to fluctuate depending on what schemes are in the planning pipeline at any time.
