Mid Devon planners – the (second) best in the west!

Posted on: 13 September 2013

A recent official league table of planning decisions has shown that Mid Devon is the second highest in the whole of the south west in our speed and quality of decision making.

Minimum targets are that 60% of major applications, 65% of minor applications and 80% of other applications should all be determined within eight weeks. We achieved 71.90%, a very close second to Plymouth, which achieved 78.40%.

Also, we have been awarded ‘smarter planning champion’ status by the Planning Portal for the improvements we have made to providing services and delivering a faster and smarter planning application system electronically.
