How long does it take to get planning permission?

  February 28, 2023

Central Government sets statutory deadlines for planning determination:- Applications being decided under “delegated powers” (that is where the decision is considered and issued directly from the Planning Department) should take 8 weeks but where an application is to be decided using a Planning Committee then the deadline is 13 weeks. In reality, the planning system is be-set by delays and these deadlines are often missed. Good relationships and diplomatic negotiations are an essential part of the process.

As part of our service, we will track your application and contact the local authority on your behalf if required.
