9. Clock Stops

In quarter three of 2017/18 31 local authorities provided information on particular delays for 426 applications that were outwith their control and on which it was agreed it was appropriate to stop the clock for periods of time. This compares to 298 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 three 2017/18.
