DCLG statistics show surge in household permissions

by on March 10, 2016

Last week I posted the latest set of online application data. In summary we had our best month ever for electronic apps with almost 47,000 submitted via the site.

There was some discussion in the comments section about what could have caused the increase. I mentioned then that we had seen submission numbers rising across the board but with a particular surge of householder applications.

DCLG this week published their latest statistics on application numbers and they report a rise in household planning permissions granted.

The government’s figures show that as well as rising numbers of planning permissions for homes, the number of permissions granted overall between October and December 2015 was up four per cent on the same period a year ago, with councils granting 92,000 decisions.
