Processing Agreements

A planning processing agreement is a project management tool for the determination of a planning application. They can be used to set out the key processes involved in determining a planning application, identifying what information is required, and from whom, and setting timescales for the delivery of various stages of the process.

Processing agreements can deliver a number of benefits including:

  • Greater transparency in decision-making for everyone involved in the process.
  • Greater predictability and certainty over the timing of key stages.
  • Faster decision making.
  • Clearer lines of communication between authority and applicant.
  • More effective and earlier engagement of key stakeholders.

Stirling Council intends to use Processing Agreements for all major applications and the more complex local developments (Processing Agreement Form).
