LB Hammersmith & Fulham has published a list of outstanding Section 106 monies as part of its transparency drive.
The list details the contributions yet to be spent, and their source. LBHF is one of the first councils in the country to do this.
Cllr Harry Phibbs, cabinet member for community engagement, said: “By publishing outstanding Section 106 details online, residents will be able to make sure that we are spending the contribution from developers effectively and not leaving the money unspent in a remote account.”
Cllr Nick Botterill, deputy leader and cabinet member for environment, said: “This council has a strong track record when it comes to negotiating Section 106 agreements with developers. Now that these details have been published online, residents will be able to see exactly how we are spending the proceeds to improve the areas in which they live. We hope that this transparency will encourage residents to come forward with ideas about the best way to spend the money in their neighbourhoods.”
