Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
Some larger and more complex planning applications would be handled through a Planning Performance Agreement (PPA).
This is where we work together with you to agree actions, resources and timescales.
When reviewing your initial request for pre-application advice we may recommend a PPA, which will be discussed and offered to you.

PPA's are subject to a different charging structure to pre-application advice.
If your application proceeds as a PPA, any payment you have already made for pre-application advice will be discounted against the PPA fee.
Check what fee is applicable
If you are offered a PPA, we have a template to help with the project.
