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.
