Improving planning performance - Criteria for designation (revised 2018)

The MHCLG has updated its "Improving Planning Performance: Criteria for Designation" document which sets out its criteria for designation and the the timeframes that will be used when considering designations.

The new document states that designation decisions in the first quarter of 2019 for speed of decision-making would consider the two-year timeframe between October 2016 and September 2018. Meanwhile, decisions in 2020 would be based on the period between October 2017 and September 2019.

For quality of decision-making, the two assessment periods would be April 2016 to March 2018 and April 2017 to March 2019.

The threshold criteria would remain unchanged for both speed and quality, the document says.
