Dear Sue Hill,

Thank you for the explanation. Guess my original question is designed to establish how quickly registered planning applications should form the subject of a decision. Are there any rules on timing ?

Not sure 'the current encounter with a new virus' will allow your promise to be fulfilled - but thanks if it is.

Yours sincerely,

Gerald Rigler

Sue Hill, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council

I have forwarded this to my colleague in Planning who should be in to reply next week.

Dear Mr Rigler

 

In reply to your FOI request I can advise the following:

 

The application was validated on 30 August 2018 and had a statutory
determination date of 20 December 2018. However, following the assessment
of the application a number of concerns were raised to the application and
the applicant was afforded the opportunity to submit amended proposals to
seek address the concerns raised by statutory consultees and as set out by
the Local Planning Authority. Discussions and negotiation on the
application then proceeded through a series of meetings in 2019 which
culminated in amended plans and documents being formally submitted and a
re-consultation and re-notification process being commenced in mid October
2019. This revised application is currently being assessed with further
discussions taking place with the applicant and their consultants. This is
an on-going process and therefore until those discussions are concluded
with the applicant it is not possible at this current time to advise when
a recommendation will be presented to the Council's Planning Committee for
determination of the application.

 

Sincerely

Dear Richard Salt,

Thank you for the clarification. Obviously there are no time constraints that can be applied in such circumstances - necessitating vigilance, despite the passage of time, from those keen to help planners protect the "public interest". Hopefully a matter to be addressed by the expected White Paper, since planning decisions should have a delivery date once the adequate material has been registered. It is suspected that the current system deprives LPAs of fees and charges that would otherwise be required.

Thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

Gerald Rigler
