On the 9th December 2011 Middlesbrough Council’s Planning Committee gave planning
permission for the site which currently houses the Headquarters of Cleveland Police to be
developed into a residential area. This planning permission was subject to the agreement,
amongst other things, of the completion of a section 106 agreement between the parties.
A section 106 agreement refers to section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990
and the agreements within the document detail the obligations that Middlebrough Council
may enforce against the Land owner. The obligations, realistically, will be against any
future landowner if the PCC was to make a decision to sell the land at Ladgate Lane.
