Comments on our performance in 2006-07
This satisfactory level of performance has been achieved by:- Investing additional resources from Planning Delivery
Grant to improve service provision.- Implementing Planning Committee's decision to
delegate appropriate powers to speed up the decision
making process.- Encouraging pre-application discussion with
applicants to ensure they submit fully documented
and comprehensive planning applications.
