What Are Planning Performance Agreements

Central government encourages the use of service planning agreements (AAAs) for large or complex planning proposals. As part of its expanded planning service, the Borough Council now offers candidates the opportunity to conclude a Planning Performance Agreement (AAE) with the Council. This corresponds to the Council`s existing pre-candidate consultation. An AAE is a project management tool that allows all parties to agree on schedules, actions and resources for processing planning applications. AAEs are generally agreed during the pre-application phase and cover the entire development process, from consultation of preliminary application planning and Community engagement to the follow-up decision phase, including conditions relief and location monitoring, to meetings on the progress of the application. AAEs can be used for any type of application, but are the most effective for large and complex planning applications.

They are not considered a legally binding contract unless the parties wish to approach the contract in this way. It is helpful to be aware of one`s status in the planning performance agreement. Parties are invited to make available to the public the existence and content of a planning performance agreement so that the agreed process and agreed timetable are transparent.

In the case of very large or complex systems, the agreement can also serve as the basis for all voluntary contributions that the applicant has proposed in the event of unusual costs for processing the application. The parties will want to ensure that these payments do not exceed the cost of additional work, have no impact on the application decision, and do not divert resources from the processing of other files; Any additional resources thus made available must be used for additional capabilities that are really necessary to ensure an efficient and timely service.
