A record month for online applications

by on March 5, 2015

In February we received 40,624 online applications, which equates to 38,177 total submissions – a huge 19.3% increase on the same period 12 months ago.

In line, the work-day averages for submissions have also increased. February was a record month with 1,863 applications submitted each working day. So far March is even higher with daily submissions hovering around the 2,000 mark. The work-day average for online applications in March has roughly doubled from 2012

This chart shows the change in daily submission over the last few years.


Does this indicate an increase in total planning applications or just those submitted online?

We won’t know for sure until DCLG publishes its PS1/2 returns reports sometime later this month but we suspect it’s a bit of both.
