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 three of 2016/17 there were 381 applications that were subject to a processing agreement, and 83.5% of these were decided within agreed timescales. ( Quarter 3, 2016/17 - Table 1).
