How long does it take to determine a planning application?

We aim to determine most planning applications within the statutory time periods which is usually eight weeks (or 13 for major developments and 16 for EIA development) from the date of validation.  Further information about time periods for determining a planning application can be found on the Government website.

If for some reason we are unable to determine a planning application within the statutory time period it is our practice to contact the agent (or applicant if there is no agent) to agree a revised target date for the application.
