8. Delegation Rates

Schemes of Delegation identify who will make the planning authority's decision on different types of planning application, whether it be an appointed officer or elected members. This also influences the route for any subsequent appeal. These schemes are required by legislation and are available on the websites of each planning authority.

The delegation rates shown below measure the proportion of planning decisions that are made by appointed officers. ( Annual, 2015/16: Table 34) The delegation rate for 2015/16 was 94.9%. This is the highest delegation rate over the past six years.
