Planning delays

Planning delays

Planning delays are affecting South Somerset projects.  Changes and restructuring at South Somerset District Council are affecting Planning and Building Control Services timescales and response times.

A “transformation” is taking place across South Somerset District Council. These changes are designed to make the council more efficient. Frustratingly, the interim stages are creating lengthy delays in the Building Control and Planning processes.  It is taking several weeks to validate a project. Decisions are therefore delayed and you can expect to wait 12 weeks or so from validation to a decision.

Our local Planning and Building Control Services departments are doing their utmost to clear the backlog, so we just need to factor in the likely delays.

Please do bear that in mind when preparing your project’s timeline.
