Apply for planning permission
Planning processing agreements
We highly recommend a planning processing agreement for major and complex local developments.
Planning processing agreements can help your planning application proceed more efficiently through the system and give certainty to the process.
The benefits include:
- faster decision making
- clear lines of communication
- early engagement with all relevant interested stakeholders
- more certainty and commitment about the information we require
- timelines for submissions, responses and committee meetings
If a processing agreement would benefit your application, this will be highlighted at the pre-application stage for major development. For complex local developments, your case officer will contact you to discuss this after the application has been validated.
