In the third quarter of 1992 local planning authorities in England received 118,000 applications for planning permission and other related consents, figures published today show.

This was 9% less than in the corresponding period in 1991, the 13th such decrease in successive quarters.

Local planning authorities made 116,000 planning decisions in the third quarter of 1992, 9% fewer than in the same period of 1991. There were falls in all regions, with the largest in the West Midlands.

Decisions relating to householder developments in England were 10% lower, and new housebuilding decisions 19% lower than in the previous year; these accounted for 40% and 14% of all decisions respectively.

The percentage of all planning decisions that were taken within the statutory eight week period was 64% in the third quarter of 1992, compared with 60% in the corresponding quarter of 1991. This was the highest rate since the last quarter of 1986.

Local planning authorities refused 15% of applications in the third quarter of 1992, compared with 17% in the same period in 1991. Refusal rates fell in all regions.

A more detailed breakdown of the statistics is available from the DoE.
