Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to determine a planning application?

Government Targets are used to assess how quickly we determine planning applications:

  • 60% of 'Major' applications for residential or commercial/industrial development within 13 weeks
  • 65% of 'Minor' applications for residential or commercial/industrial development within 8 weeks
  • 80% of 'Other' applications for householder extensions, changes or use, listed building consent, conservation area consent or advertisement consent within 8 weeks.

Details of how Braintree District Council is performing against the government’s targets are available on the planning performance page.
