An accelerated planning system consultation

7 March 2024

The government has announced a consultation on a series of measures aimed at “accelerating” the planning service. These include a proposed ten week time limit for determining major commercial applications (and fee refunds if this is met) and a simpler process to vary planning permissions once granted.

Further information about the consultation, which closes on 1 May 2024 can be found on the government website here.

SLCC intend to respond to the consultation. To contribute to SLCC’s response, please send your comments by email to Andrew Towlerton, SLCC National Planning Advisor, [email protected] by close of play Wednesday 24 April 2024.
