Planning Processing Agreements

Planning Processing Agreement (PPA) is an agreement between you and our Planning team to determine the key milestones in the planning application process and identify the information that you will need to provide for your development. 

Benefits of this agreement include: 

  • greater transparency in decision-making for everyone involved in the process
  • extra predictability and certainty over the timing of key stages
  • faster decision-making
  • clearer lines of communication 
  • more effective and earlier engagement of key stakeholders
