Barnet Planning Performance Agreement

Some important potential benefits include: planning performance agreements are concluded in accordance with the Local Government Act 2011 and the Local Government Acts 1972, 2000 and 2003. Section 93 of the Local Government Act 2003 allows local planning authorities to levy charges for the provision of discretionary services and the legislation specifies that, where charges are levied, they must not exceed the costs of providing the service. The Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy (CIPFA) identifies PPP/developer contributions as a source of revenue that should be optimized by planning authorities. The conclusion of a planning agreement does not guarantee the building permit.
