Planning Market Insight Report: 2021 saw the highest number of online application submissions ever

by on January 24, 2022

2021 was the busiest year yet for online planning application submissions. The beginning of the year followed on from the extremely high levels seen at the end of 2020, but the end of the year appears to have returned to normality. Have we seen the end of the planning application boom? 

  • 723,552 planning applications were submitted to Local Planning Authorities in England and Wales throughout 2021.
  • December received 49,587 applications, seven per cent lower than December 2022.

This month’s issue also includes analysis on the regional breakdown of application submissions, a national overview from the last six years and an in-depth dive into applications by type and application fees.
