- Boroughs are required to have clear monitoring processes to ensure that the affordable housing secured on or off site is delivered in line with the Section 106 agreement.
- Monitoring processes should ensure that any cash in lieu payments are used to deliver additional affordable housing.
- Boroughs should ensure that where a review mechanism is triggered, it is implemented and the number of extra homes delivered, or cash in lieu secured is recorded.
- Boroughs must publish monitoring information on A-C annually to ensure transparency in the planning process and so the public know how funds are being spent. This information should be shared with the GLA so it can be part of the annual monitoring process.
