Online submissions continue to outstrip planning application growth

by on September 24, 2015

The number of planning applications submitted through the Planning Portal continue to grow faster than the overall number of applications.

DCLG this week published their total applications figures based on LPA’s quarterly PS1 and PS2 returns.

According to DCLG’s figures, 123,543 applications were submitted to English planning authorities between April and June. Separately, 7,397 applications were submitted to Welsh LPAs in the same period. This gives us a total of 130,940 applications for the three-month period.

Compared to the same quarter last year, this means the total number of applications submitted grew by 0.6 per cent – while the number of applications submitted via the Planning Portal increased by 12.8 per cent compared to 2014.
