Benefits Of Planning Performance Agreement

It is important to consider the pre-application phase as a bilateral process between the local planning authority and the potential applicant, although the nature and circumstances of some systems may warrant the involvement of other parties (for example. B legal advice). The amount of information needed to engage effectively before implementation depends on the magnitude and nature of the proposed evolution. In all cases, the level of information requested by the local planning authority must be proportionate to the proposed development. It is not necessary to expect a potential applicant to provide all the information accompanying a formal planning request, but he or she must have sufficient information for the local planning authority to have an informed opinion. No no. Guildford Borough Council cannot guarantee the outcome of a planning request. By signing up for an AAE, make sure you have the best chance of getting a positive conclusion. The AAEs are designed to eliminate some of the uncertainty for applicants and to keep communication open throughout the planning process. Guildford Borough Council is not required to approve applications subject to an AAE. If a pre-application is to be useful, a development proposal may change before submitting a formal planning application.

This could solve problems identified in the pre-application phase and/or raise new issues that need to be discussed. Please email your completed proforma to planningenquiries@guildford.gov.uk In principle, planning agreements can be used for each application, if an agreement is warranted, but depends on the size and complexity of the proposal. It may be possible to use a simple form of agreement for smaller systems, based on the main milestones to be met. Paying an AEA fee ensures that your application is processed on an agreed schedule with meetings to resolve issues encountered during the application process. However, it does not guarantee the granting of a building permit. If the planning proposal is contrary to the guidelines adopted by the Council, the London plan or the national guidelines, it is recommended to be rejected. A planning performance agreement certainly helps to transform a large demand into an agreed timetable with meetings in order to resolve the problems encountered during the application process; signing a planning performance agreement between the applicant and the local planning authority does not affect the outcome of a planning request and does not provide a guarantee for the building permit. In order to ensure transparency when local planning authorities charge for certain pre-application services, it is highly recommended to provide clear information online about this: an AEA is a project management tool for large-scale applications and small, complex applications that allow all parties involved to clarify what they are asking for at all stages of the planning process. When a planning request for a major development proposal is submitted without a planning performance agreement, we treat it as a routine application as part of our team`s existing workload, with no dedicated resources. It is determined without the long-term dialogue that usually takes place through such systems. The involvement of stakeholders prior to the application has considerable potential to improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of the planning enforcement system and to improve the quality of planning applications and their chances of success. This can be achieved by: Pre-application Board and Planning Performance Agreement (PDF 4mb) The existence of a planning performance agreement means that the legal time frames for determining the application no longer apply (as long as the agreement provides for a longer time frame for the decision, in which case the agreement will apply in the same way as an agreed extension of time).
