Planning Inspectorate appeal decision times improve

An additional 67 new planners have helped the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) halve the backlog of appeal cases since the start of the year, new figures show.

The findings of PINS’ latest performance update for England and Wales, published earlier this week, show that planning appeal decision times were significantly reduced in the most recent quarter.

Around 3,700 appeal decisions were issued between July and September, compared with 3,437 appeals decided by PINS between April and June, the inspectorate said, with 42% of written representation appeals decided within 18 weeks in September, compared to 12% in October 2018.
