1. Introduction

This statistical publication presents summary findings on planning decision-making and timescales for 2017/18 to 2021/22. It is based on data collected twice yearly (midyear - Q1 and Q2 and yearend - Q3 and Q4) by the Scottish Government from planning authorities. A set of annual tables and charts is also produced.

A set of midyear findings is also published at the start of the year. The yearend data are then collected to allow the annual findings to be produced. A set of yearend tables are published alongside the annual tables. A summary of the yearend results are reported as an Annex to this publication.

All the above findings can be found on our web page. Information on quality assurance, revisions policy, uses of the data and historic publications can also be found. View the Scottish Government planning statistics web page.
