Planning decisions by: type of development, speed of decision, type and speed, major or minor and enforcement actions.

Regional figures are rounded and do not necessarily sum to the independently rounded national figures.

Speed of Decision: Figures exclude 'county matters' decisions. The percentages do not relate directly to the total number of decisions taken, as some applications (eg. an application for a determination as to whether planning permission is required) can neither be granted nor refused.

Type and Speed: Percentages may not add up to one hundred due to rounding.

Enforcement Actions: TSNs are authorised by the Town and Country Planning Act, new sections 171E to 171H, inserted by Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 from 28 March 2005. Data collected from July 2005. Where a series of interim injunctions is granted to restrain the same breach of planning control, only the first injunction is recorded here.
