A partner authority scheme enables companies to ‘partner’ with their preferred Local Authority. The Partner Authority will deal with all aspects of design for example:
- Plans examination
- Pre-application advice All necessary consultations, including the fire service, wherever the project is located within England and Wales
- Site inspections will also be carried out by the Local Authority in whose area the project is to be built in close liaison with the Partner Authority.
For companies that build over a wide geographic area partnering can help to simplify and speed up the building process.
