East of England: Local Planning Authority Performance

East of England


Our Regional Market Report series examines how each local planning authority (LPA) is performing in the East of England.

In this report, we’ll be taking a look at a variety of metrics ranging from planning targets to demographic breakdowns. 



LPA Performance

To measure the performance of the Local Planning Authorities within the region we have recorded the following metrics in our downloadable fact sheets: 

  • Population data
  • Housing Delivery (with data drawn from the 2021 Housing Delivery Test);
  • Established 5YHLS
  • The average determination period for different types of application
  • The overall approval ratio planning applications
  • The percentage of major planning application refusals that are overturned on appeal 

We've also included vital information, provided by Cratus, to give you an insight into who the leaders of the councils are, who the chairs of the DM committees are, where their wards are located, and how the Council is politically constituted.*
