How long does a decision take?
For a full plans application the Council is required to
give written notice of the passing or rejection of plans within
five weeks of their deposit, unless it is agreed in writing that
the period be extended to a maximum of two calendar months from the
date of the application.
Every effort is made by negotiation to pass the plan within the
prescribed period. If the Council rejects your plan under a full
plans submission, you may resubmit with revisions or ask the
Secretary of State to determine the issue following the procedures
contained in the legislation.
