CIL AND S106 SITE VISITS

Advocate Posts: 103 Join Date: 05/09/13 Recent Posts

Hi all,

Do any Council Officers that carry out site visits to monitor development in order to administer the CIL Regulations and S106 Agreements have 'special' wording on your Council id badges (or any separate paperwork that you carry) that allows you access onto land as a Council empployee for the purposes of administering the Regulations? If so, what Council are you with and what does your wording say?

Many Thanks

Bex

Hi Bex,

My Sheffield City Council ID badge has wording on the back to allow me entry for site visits.  The wording is: - 

Sheffield City Council authorise Claire Woods to enter land and premises at all reasonable hours pursuant to the provision of Section 196A, 196B and 324 of The Town and Country Planning Act 1990, Section 88 of The Town and Country Planning Act (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, Reg 109 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) and Section 34 of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005.

The same is on all Planning and Enforcement Officers ID badges.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Claire

Hi Bex,

Yes, at Torridge District Council planning officers have similar wording to what Claire mentions above on the back of our ID cards. To be honest, I'm not sure whether what we have would cover us for the purpose you state, particularly as we are not a CIL Charging authority, however happy to share the wording which is as follows:

"Authority to Enter Premises

The officer shown overleaf is hearby an authorised officer for the purposes of the following:

Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended:

Section 196A - Right to Enter Premises

Section 196B - Right to Enter Premises under warrant

Section 196C - Right of Entry

Section 214B - Right to Enter

Section 214C - Right to Enter under warrant

Section 324 - Rights of Entry

Planning (Listed Buildings & Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended

Section 88 - Rights to Enter premises

Section 88A - Rights to Enter premises under warrant

Hedgerow Regulations 1997

Regulations 12 - Right to Enter premises

Regulation 13 Right to Enter under warrant"

Hope this helps,

Ian

Hi, at New Forest District Council, we have similar to what others have listed (e.g. a list of the relevant planning acts that authorise us entry).

And let's not forget there are some important limitations such as

196 A (4)Admission to any building used as a dwellinghouse shall not be demanded as of right by virtue of subsection (1) or (2) unless twenty-four hours’ notice of the intended entry has been given to the occupier of the building.
