4. Processing Agreements

Some local authorities use processing agreements where the developer and the local authority agree on timescales for decisions. When an application is subject to a processing agreement it is removed from average decision time calculations and reported separately. In quarter one of 2016/17 there were 281 applications that were subject to a processing agreement, and 77.6% of these were processed within agreed timescales. ( Quarter 1, 2016/17 - Table 1)
