Model Section 106 Agreement for Integrated Retirement Communities

A consensus view to local planning authorities


Many local planning authorities do not have experience of Integrated Retirement Communities (IRCs). ARCO and its Members have therefore developed a model Section 106 agreement to present a consensus view to local planning authorities on the key operational terms and definitions that are used in planning agreements for IRCs - specifically those relating to use, occupancy and the provision of care services. The Model S106 provides certainty to local planning authorities that schemes will operate as genuine IRCs and ensures that there is a mechanism for enforcement of key aspects of those schemes in perpetuity.
