This report presents the latest summary statistics on planning decision-making and timescales for July to September 2016 (Quarter 2), as well as historic data going back to quarter one of 2012/13. It is based on data collected by the Scottish Government from Local and Planning Authorities as part of the Planning Performance Framework (introduced in 2012).
