Applications for Local Developments (excludes legacy cases)
There were 15,031 decisions on local developments in the first two quarters of 2021/22. This was 4,130 (38%) more than the same period in the previous year and the most applications determined in both quarter one and two since 2015/16. The average decision time for the 13,403 of these which were not subject to processing agreements was 10.2 weeks, just over a day slower than the corresponding time of 10.0 weeks for the first two quarters of 2020/21.
In quarter one there were 772 local development applications with processing agreements, 75.4% (582) met agreed timescales that had been set between developers and local authorities. In quarter two there were 856, 77.7% (665) meeting the agreed timescales.
There was also one Local Development pre 3rd August 2009 legacy case determined. Further details about legacy cases can be seen in Section 11.
