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 2017/18 there were 471 applications that were subject to a processing agreement, and 80.3 per cent of these were decided within agreed timescales ( Quarter 1, 2017/18 – Table 1).
