Planning applications on the up and up

by on April 10, 2015

The application numbers for March are now in. It looks you’ve been busy again as it was a bumper month for applications – up 22% on last March at 46,739!

That brings the total for the financial year 2014/15 to a whopping 458,276 applications. Below you can see the increases (and in some cases decreases) of all the application types that can currently be submit through the Planning Portal from 2013/14 to 2014/15 as a whole.

Some types of application (shown in green) outperformed the average yearly increase, in particular “Full With Conservation Area”, “Full with Listed Buildings” and “Removal or Variation of a Condition” at around a 40% increase. The falls we saw were either down to policy changes (affecting Conservation Area) or change in business practices (some Prior Notifications).
