The average decision time for a local development in quarter 1 of 2014/15 was 10.1 weeks, again the quickest average decision time since average time reporting started.

Statistics on quarterly planning performance in Scotland have been released yesterday by Scotland’s Chief Statistician. This includes a new format quarterly performance publication to present trend information in a more user friendly way, as well as the standard quarterly Excel web tables that provide a range of information on average decision times for planning applications.

The average decision time for the 86 major developments decided in the first quarter from April to June 2014 was 28.9 weeks, down by more than 6 weeks from the previous quarter (35.2 weeks) and also down by almost 4 weeks on the same quarter in the previous year (32.8 weeks). When compared to the first quarter in 2012/13 (38.5 weeks), the improvement is almost 10 weeks.
