How can LandTech help?
We have teamed up with Cratus Communications to provide you with a summary of political information relating to the planning authority that your site is located in.
You can find the political summary within our LPA datasheets, alongside information on average application determination periods, approval rates, appeal overturn rates, 5YHLS figures, Housing Delivery Test results, and adopted/emerging policy information.
If you need further information on the local politics in that area you’ll be able to contact Cratus directly for more bespoke assistance.
The London information is live now and we’ll be rolling this out across the country in the coming weeks. Watch this space…
What does the data show us?
Having access to knowledge about key players in the local political scene will help you make decisions about the relative risk associated with your site.
If your site is within a ward that is controlled by a minority party within the Council then, assuming you’re coming to the committee with a recommendation for approval, you might get an easier ride when it comes to the debate and decision. Conversely, if you have a site that is within the council leader’s ward, or the chair of the planning committee’s ward, then you may find yourself facing a little more scrutiny at committee.
Knowing this detail up front will help you plan for the committee decision stage of your planning application.
By accessing our Report Hub and searching for our LPA datasheets, you will be able to see how the local politics in your area will affect your site and its planning permission.
