The announcement is part of the government's response to the House of Commons Communities & Local Government Committee's report on PGS, which was published in November.
The committee also recommended the government make data available to allow a comparison between the hypothetical benefits that would have been accrued in a particular area under section 106 that were realised under PGS.
But the government rejected this request. It said it would not require councils to produce this analysis because it 'would result in a disproportionate increase in the burden on local planning authorities to provide the hypothetical section 106 data'.
