Legal Agreements Templates
The Council's Legal and Planning teams have put in place standard templates for legal agreements associated with planning permission and planning permission in principle under Section 75 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 (as amended). It is expected that this will improve the consistency, certainty and speed of finalisation of legal agreements and, thereby, the efficiency and effectiveness of the planning process.
Please note that as of 16 January 2017 the templates will form the basis for the drafting of all new Section 75 legal agreements. Legal agreements that are already been agreed in draft form will not have to be changed. The templates are available to view from the following links:
