S106 Financial Contributions Payments

A section 106 agreement is a legal agreement which usually relates to major developments. It generally includes agreements relating to the amount a developer will contribute financially to alleviate the additional demand on local services and infrastructure caused by the development.

The EDC will invoice for each financial contribution as it is triggered. On receipt of the invoice, payment can be made either by cheque or electronic transfer. Should you wish to pay by cheque, please make these payable to Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and send with a covering letter for the attention of the Development Monitoring Officer. Should you wish to pay electronically, please transfer payment to the EDC bank account as detailed on the invoice. When paying electronically, you will need to reference the payment to ensure the funds are allocated to the correct account.
