Achieving planning consent can be a complex process, which sometimes requires additional commitments from the developer in the form of Section 106 (Section 75 in Scotland) planning obligations.These agreementsenable a local planning authority to enter into a legally-binding agreement with a developerto fund the monitoring of air qualityin the affected area.

Froma local authority’sperspective, these obligations can represent a vital element of the mitigation programme and may also be critical to the funding of such schemes.

Ruth’s presentation will look at why planning obligations are so important to local authorities, and explain how Section 106/75agreements have successfully enabled air quality monitoring programmes to ensure that development does not have a detrimental effect on air quality.

The ambient air monitoring conference on Wednesday 13th March has been recognised by the IAQM as valuable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for its members and other air quality professionals.
