Statistical data set

Live tables on planning application statistics

Live tables for statistics on planning applications at national and local planning authority level.

Tables P152 and P154

Publication of quarterly tables P152 and P154 resumed on 10 August 2017, when they were released as Experimental Statistics to enable local authorities to validate the information held. This followed the resolution of technical concerns relating to some aspects of the appeals data used that led to the tables being suspended in 2015.

The latest versions of the tables, published on 23 August 2018, continue to be Experimental Statistics, to enable local authorities to continue to validate the information held. These tables provide the basis for decisions on the designation of poorly-performing local planning authorities - in terms of the quality of decision-making. The latest published criteria are available in Improving planning performance: criteria for designation. Details of the threshold for designation in 2019 will be published in due course. For queries, including on data validation, please contact planning.statistics@communities.gov.uk.

Historical live tables and statistical releases for the annual development control statistics covering 2004-05 to 2008-09 are available from The National Archives. This annual release was discontinued during 2009, but most of the information that was provided is now included in the quarterly planning application releases.

Historical live tables for the quarterly planning application statistics covering January 2008 to June 2012 are also available from The National Archives, including quarterly statistical releases covering January 2008 to December 2009.
