Processing Agreements content

The Council positively encourages the use of Processing Agreements to assist in the determination of more significant and complex applications.

A Processing Agreement is a project management tool designed to achieve more transparent, predictable and faster decision making along with greater engagement of stakeholders and clearer lines of communication. It should be simple in content and should not take significant time to prepare.

We intend to conclude a Processing Agreement for all major applications (as defined in the Hierarchy of Development Regulations 2009) but are also happy to encourage the use of Processing Agreements for more significant and complex local applications.

Information on the benefits of Processing Agreements along with a standard template can be found at the Scottish Government website.
