Midlands: Local Planning Authority Performance



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

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: 

  • 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 

Results for individual LPAs are available to download here (we're uploading these are they're completed - if you'd like us to prioritise a particular LPA, please let us know.)
