Planning targets

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.
