Implementation - process flow

The process flow chart on the left illustrates diagrammatically how the protocol can be followed and the different routes to compliance.


The primary project stages shown in grey on the left give an indication of possible timing, though projects will vary in practice.

Some of the processes may be iterative, particularly around the offer and selection of participation options.

It is possible that a shared ownership agreement may also cover other participation aspects or there may be an additional participation agreement.

A non-compliance not shown schematically would be the developer declining to complete the shared ownership agreement where the community partner had met its obligations.
