The buyer will purchase the land subject to a Section 106 Agreement and any bids will need to take into full account the obligations set out within the Agreement.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Section 106 Agreement commits the buyer to providing a minimum of 40% (80 units) affordable housing split between 32 rented units and 48 shared ownership units. The mix is indicative and will be confirmed at a Reserved Matters Application.

The buyer will be responsible for any Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charged. Wiltshire Council have confirmed that the current CIL liability charged based on the chargeable floor area of the approved development would be £85 per square meter index linked.
