Contributions to social infrastructure provision via S106 agreements is something that the boroughs lead on as these agreements are between the boroughs and developers rather than with me.

The majority of schemes that are referred to me do make contributions to social infrastructure, but the level of contribution and the monitoring of its delivery is the responsibility of the boroughs and is usually determined by their S106 Supplementary Planning Guidance or is set out within their Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) infrastructure lists.
