Self Build Section 106 Exemption Being Questioned

Recommended Posts

Bit of a worry for self builders...more money grabbing by councils!

"Last week, a High Court judgement allowed West Berkshire and Reading borough councils to challenge the implementation of Section 106 exemption for sites under 10 units. The judgement means local authorities are once again free to force self builders to pay thousands of pounds in fees to build their own home."

Only an issue if you are adding a property. If it's a knock down and rebuild of an existing property, which many new builds are given the dearth of land for sale, then no s106 fees are due.
