Many significant and complex development proposals take a long time to determine due to reasons, which are beyond the control of the Council, including:
- Consultation with those affected by the proposal may have started too late.
- Other essential legal agreements or consents may not be in place.
- The applicant may have decided to make major alterations to the scheme after submission.
- The applicant or agent may not have reacted quickly enough to our request for modifications or additional information.
The Council's guide 'Complex and Significant Development Proposals' aims to encourage and develop early dialogue with prospective developers in order to maximise benefits for all stakeholders.
