Dear Sir/Madam,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST FOI001-5154

With regards to your request for information received on 17 July 2023, I
would be grateful if you could clarify the following:

Could we seek some clarity on the question For the 2022/23 year, what was
the average time for residential developments to receive SAB approval? Can
you please clarify the potential answer required as the SAB process can
vary significantly with varying time periods depending on whether they
incorporate pre-applications, initial submission, validation periods,
residential developments varying from one dwelling – non adoptable, to 100
dwellings adoptable etc.

 

Can you confirm which scenario’s they are seeing a timeframe for:

 

1 – All residential dwellings including extensions over 100m2;

2 – All residential dwellings for one or more properties – non adoptable
schemes;

3 – All residential dwellings for one or more properties - adoptable
schemes;

4 – Residential Schemes including pre-apps timeframes to SAB approval;

5 – Residential schemes from submission to SAB department to SAB approval;

6 – Residential schemes from validation of SAB application to SAB approval

If I do not receive clarification from you within one month, I will close
the file.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

 

Tina
