Guidance Notes for Completing a Unilateral Undertaking

A template of a Unilateral Undertaking has been made available for you to use and although you are under no obligation to do so we recommend that you use it in order to avoid any unnecessary delays in the planning application process.

Please ensure that when submitting your draft Unilateral Undertaking, you also supply us with the following:

  • An application site plan.
  • In the event of registered land; Land Registry title documentation and including a title plan that covers the entire application site (these MUST be official and up to date copies obtained directly from the Land Registry, unofficial copies will not be accepted); or,
  • In the event of unregistered land; a certificate of title with accompanying plan, duly signed by a solicitor.
  • A covering letter confirming that our relevant legal costs will be met.

Your draft agreement will then be checked by both our Planning Obligations Officer and our Legal Department, after which you will be notified any amendments required to be made to the agreement in order to make it acceptable.

Once you have made these amendments please ensure that the agreement is dated and is then signed by all parties to it and you have attached a site plan (with the area the subject of the planning application outline in red).  This also needs to be signed by all parties.

We then ask you to submit to us an original signed copy of the agreement with attached plan and one further copy of the agreement with attached plan along with a cheque made payable to 'Eastleigh Borough Council' to cover the legal fees.

Please Note: Failure to submit the approved and complete Unilateral Undertaking agreement along with the relevant fee by our statutory 8/13 week period may result in your application being refused.
