The time-frame for deciding on a planning application is 8 weeks. Before this period expires, the Council must grant permission, refuse permission, request further information or, with your agreement, extend the time period.
The Council cannot determine your application within the first 5 weeks. This is to allow third parties an opportunity to make submissions on your application.
If on request, further information is forwarded to the Council and does not require any clarification, the Council has 4 weeks to make a decision on your application. If you do not reply to further information within 6 months of being requested, your application will be declared withdrawn.
The nine days from 24 December to 1 January inclusive are excluded from the stated time periods.
