Annex A – Distribution of Decision Times for Major Applications
Each column of dots shows the distribution of decision times for the applications in the category. Each dot represents one application (some dots land on top of one other). Where there were two or more applications horizontal lines show the mean and median decision times.
The overall average decision time figures of 64.0 and 46.3 weeks have been strongly influenced by a number of lengthy decision times, including four of longer than three years in quarter one. Three of these from a single authority had decision times of longer than five years.
In quarter one, 5 of the 17 major housing applications not subject to a processing agreement had decision times of more than two years, the longest two taking 5.7 and 6.1 years. The average decision time of 84.9 weeks was notably influenced by the two applications with the longest decision time. The average decision time for the remaining 15 applications was 55.0 weeks, almost 30 weeks quicker.
In quarter two, 2 of 14 had decision times of more than two years, the longest taking 2.4 years. The average decision time (59.1 weeks) was influenced by these applications with the remaining 12 applications averaging 48.4 weeks, more than 10 weeks quicker.
