Planning applications taking longer to process
According to recent figures released by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, 42% of minor residential planning applications are subject to time extension requests beyond the statutory 13 week decision period.
This might be because the local authority does not have the resources to deal with the application by the target date, or it might be because an applicant needs time to amend an application to avoid a refusal.
