Section 106 Testimonals

Rachel Webdell from Torridge District Council said:

"I have recently been tasked with reviewing the policy and protocol for the management of S106 funds at Torridge District Council.

"I approached Malvern Hills District Council about the ‘Section 106 Fund Guidance Notes' they produced, having undertaken internet research to identify best practice in this area and to obtain a greater understanding of how other Local Authorities monitor the spend process once funds are received.

"I was impressed by the detail and clarity these notes offer on the grant procedure and therefore enquired to see if Torridge District Council could use the guidance notes produced by Malvern Hills District Council as a basis for our own guidance".
