Re: Re: Planning by Default
Article 31 of the regs states that they have 3 days to notify the aplicant of a decision they have made, However I don’t think AI is regarded as a decision. So the law is that a decision has to be made within 8 weeks and they must post that within 3 days. Generally decisions are sent on the day and arrive the next day.
Also the Local Authority can specify how long they have to make a decision after AI is lodged, up to 4 weeks. I can’t find anything in the Act relating to a grant by default. I’d say it would involve the courts in any case.
Anyway my advice is to let it go and if you feel aggrieved by the decision, then goto a planning consultant or a solicitor
