As the planning authority we use planning obligations to preserve and encourage sustainable development of land within Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
Planning obligations are entered into by us with any person who has the ability to ‘bind’ the land (most commonly the landowners). We commonly used the term Section 75 Agreement which was derived from the relevant section of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 when referring to a planning obligation entered into with a planning permission.
In the course of determining applications for planning permission we may decide to grant permission subject to a planning obligation being completed and registered against the title of the affected property. The types of situations these are used in can be found in our Local Plan policies.
