Planning Inspectorate falls short on determining environmental appeals

The Planning Inspectorate (PINS) has failed to hit its target for determining environmental appeals on time, according to its latest annual report.

The assessment of PINS’ performance in England and Wales was detailed in its annual report for the 2018/19 financial year, published today. 

In the report’s opening statement, PINS chief executive Sarah Richards said it had made “great strides in modernising” but accepted its handling of planning appeal cases in England this year had not been “good enough”. She said PINS could be more “consistent in our decisions and procedures, faster at deciding appeals and [could] improve the way that cases can be tracked in our systems.”
