Please select this link for a list of Accredited Agents (arranged in date order accreditation achieved) and their contact details.

The benefits of becoming an accredited agent are:

  • We are keen to foster good working relations with customers and to acknowledge and promote the submission of good applications.  As part of the scheme accredited agents will be publicised by the Council, our website will contain a list of accredited agents and details will be available to the public. You may also use the Accredited Agent logo on your business stationary.
  • Once accredited all planning applications submitted by such agents will be registered promptly on minimal checks. This will streamline the process and enable the Council to validate and progress applications more swiftly.

Please read the document explaining the entry requirements together with terms and conditions.

If you wish to become an accredited agent for householder applications in Cornwall, you will need to make this clear when submitting your householder applications.  We will then record your details and check your subsequent applications for validity and against the criteria of the scheme.  Once satisfied that we have received 3 consecutive applications with no errors you will be given accreditation status and invited to become an accredited agent and to sign the necessary agreement.

The Buy with Confidence Scheme provides people in Cornwall with a list of local businesses which have given their commitment to trading fairly.  Every business listed has undergone a series of detailed checks by Trading Standards officers before being approved as a member of the scheme to ensure that they operate in a legal, honest and fair way.

If you wish to discuss becoming an accredited agent for householder applications in Cornwall, please contact the team using the contact details on this page.

Note - Whilst Accredited Agents will be encouraged to submit good quality applications, accreditation, in itself, is not intended to be a reflection of the agents’ skill/qualifications, and does not imply that the applications submitted are any more or less likely to obtain permission.
