This free event, run in partnership with the Scottish Government, will provide an opportunity for planners and other built environmental professionals across both the public and private sector find out more about the use of processing agreements and their benefits. With worked examples and a prospective from both a Planning Authority and a developer this event promises to provide a useful insight into how we can move forward with the use of processing agreements to speed up the planning process.

There will be opportunity for discussion with a workshop session on how we can better use processing agreements and understand the challenges faced in bringing them forward. The Scottish Government have produced guidance on Processing Agreements (including a template for them) which is available on the link below:
