This guide provides advice to local authorities on how to provide a more co-ordinated and customer oriented approach to obtaining the consents required for a development project (such as planning permission, listed building or conservation area consent, and approval under building regulations). It identifies the main elements of a one stop shop approach and draws upon local authority practice in suggesting different ways an authority might approach the issue.
