9. Clock Stops

In quarter one of 2017/18 31 local authorities provided information on particular delays that were outwith their control and on which it was agreed it was appropriate to stop the clock for periods of time. In this quarter there were 256 applications where the clock was stopped. This compares to 329 applications across 28 local authorities in the previous quarter. Other local authorities either indicated that they were not able to provide details of dates for delays that were outwith their control or did not require any decision time to be removed. Average decision times for these local authorities may be higher than those authorities who are able to report delays in decision-making.

Table 2 shows the number of applications where the clock was stopped by the planning authority for applications decided in quarter one 2017/18.
