Planning Performance Agreement

In order to ensure that the Authority is in a position to properly discharge its various statutory and pre-application advisory functions in relation to major developments, it will require significant additional resources that are beyond its current capacity and day to day operational activity.

A Planning Performance Agreement (PPA) is therefore necessary to develop the additional capacity and resource required in order to deliver these functions. Given the scale of major developments, significant additional capacity is required to deliver on a wide range of functions - ranging from direct statutory consenting obligations for the development proposal, to the complex associated development requirements (i.e. planning, housing, highways etc

In April 2010 the Isle of Anglesey County Council (IACC) adopted a Charter for drawing up Planning Performance Agreements (PPA) between the Authority and developers with aspirations for implementing large scale projects on the Island (which would need to be consented by the Council or another determining body). Please see the PDF document below.

A PPA is a collaborative project management process for dealing with large scale projects and agreeing (with the prospective developer) additional resources the Authority will need to deliver, for example, a planning or highways decision(s).  Such agreements are designed so as to embrace the planning process from pre-application advice through the submission of an application. 

A PPA is a recognised and legitimate means of securing additional capacity and resources to facilitate the consenting process for a major infrastructure project. By entering into a PPA the Council does not commit itself to act in any way other than in accordance with its statutory powers and duties. A PPA is a voluntary agreement where either party can withdraw from. PPA is accepted practice; for example, Sedgemoor, West Somerset and Somerset County Councils have an agreed PPA  with EDF for new nuclear build at Hinkley Point, South Gloucester Council are also developing a PPA with Horizon Nuclear Power (HNP) regarding new nuclear build at Oldbury.

A PPA is a recognised means of increasing capacity to deal with consenting issues so as not to impact on day to day service provision. It is therefore imperative that the Authority enters into a PPA with prospective developers to ensure that the Authority fulfils its statutory consenting obligations and that impacts on existing service provisions are minimized.
