Roe, Richard, Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mr Dugdale,

 

Thank you for your email of 4^th June 2018 where you requested
information about planning application statistics.

 

The information that you require is supplied on a quarterly basis to The
Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and is subsequently
published via the Gov.uk website.  It is therefore exempt under section 21
of the Freedom of Information Act as it is information accesible by other
means.  The page containing the live and historic tables can be found
unsing [1]this link.  Table 131 shows the latest quarterly figures by
authority and table 132 shows the most recent annual figure by authority. 
The tables display the statistics by “Major” “Minor” and “Other” category,
 householder applications are included in the “Other” category and are not
separated out.  I have included those figures below as they are not
specifically available via the Gov.uk site.

right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to: Information Governance
Manager, Trafford Council, Town Hall, Talbot Road Stretford M32 0TH or via

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9

The supply of information in response to a freedom of information request
does not confer an automatic right to re-use the information.  Under UK
copyright law you can use any information supplied for the purposes of
private study and non-commercial research without requiring permission.
 Similarly, information supplied can also be re-used for the purposes of
news reporting. An exception to this is photographs.

For other forms of re-use, for example publishing the information, you
would need the permission of the organisation or person who owns the
copyright.  In the case of information produced by government departments
and agencies you can re-use the information under the Open Government
Licence.  For information about this please see

If, however, the copyright is identified as belonging to somebody else,
you will need to apply for permission.  For information about how to
obtain permission from a third party, please go to Intellectual Property
