Planning and Building Control Enquiries
We aim to provide a good level of service in responding to planning and building control enquiries and aim to respond to 85% of customers within 15 working days on general enquiries.
Building Control Performance
We have set ourselves a local target to check 70% of building regulation applications (full plans) within 15 working days. Our current performance includes information relating to all applications checked in this financial year.
Decisions made by the Head of Planning
Over 90% of planning decisions we make are under delegated powers granted to officers. Delegated powers are necessary to help the service achieve Government set targets.
The Government targets (BVPI) are:
Major applications: to determine 60% of planning applications within thirteen weeks of registration
Minor applications: to determine 65% of planning applications within eight weeks of registration. Other applications: to determine 80% of planning applications within eight weeks of registration.
We have set local targets above the national targets. For information relating to all applications determined in this financial year see our current performance.
