7. Delegation Rates
Schemes of Delegation identify who will make the planning authority's decision on different types of planning application, whether it is an appointed officer or elected members. Delegation rates measure the proportion of planning decisions that are made by appointed officers. The delegation rate for all applications (including legacy applications) for quarter one was 96.8% and for quarter two was 96.2%.The corresponding rates for the same quarters in the previous year were 95.5% for quarter one and 96.6% for quarter two.
COVID-19 restrictions initially resulted in limited opportunities for committees to meet which will have impacted on the proportion of applications with delegated decisions.
