Planning agents - accreditation scheme

Are you submitting a householder application? If so then we strongly recommend you employ the service of a professional planning agent to help you design and submit your scheme.

Our accreditation scheme works on the basis of planning agents who:

  • have agreed to abide by a code of practice when submitting householder applications, and

  • have a proven track record for submitting good quality applications

What are accredited agents?

Accredited agents are planning agents who have shown that they fully understand how to submit a properly prepared householder application, meaning that there are no delays when we register the application.

We cannot however, guarantee that the content of the application would be acceptable in planning terms when it is considered.

For more information, please view our accredited agents scheme code of practice.
