Planning Applications

Request

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (2000), I would like to ask the following:

1. How many planning applications have been granted since 1 January 2007, which resulted in the development of land on the metropolitan green belt? How many applications are pending?

Please provide a breakdown of these applications in an excel spreadsheet with the following information:
- date application submitted
- date application granted
- application number
- the area, in hectares, of the site (and how much falls inside the green belt, if only part)
- the location of the site, preferably using latitude and longitude (although other formats such as eastings/northings or a postcode would also be acceptable)
- planned use of the site (commercial, housing, etc)

2. How many planning applications have been granted since 1 January 2007, which resulted in the development of any greenfield site? How many are pending?

Please provide a breakdown of these applications in an excel spreadsheet with the following information (as above):
- date application submitted
- date application granted
- application number
- the area, in hectares, of the site (and how much falls inside the green belt, if only part)
- the location of the site, preferably using latitude and longitude (although other formats such as eastings/northings or a postcode would also be acceptable)
- planned use of the site (commercial, housing, etc)

3. How many planning applications have been granted since 1 January 2007, which resulted in the development of any brownfield site? How many are pending?

Please provide a breakdown of these applications in an excel spreadsheet with the following information (as above):
- date application submitted
- date application granted
- application
- the area, in hectares, of the site (and how much falls inside the green belt, if only part)
- the location of the site, preferably using latitude and longitude (although other formats such as eastings/northings or a postcode would also be acceptable)
- planned use of the site (commercial, residential, etc)

If there are any difficulties in complying with one or more of the above, please could you inform me of this as soon as possible, but continue dealing with any other parts of my request.

Response

I would advise that currently the Uniform system used by my Council does not hold this information, and thus cannot be retrieved electronically, and to search manually by my staff would be excessive in terms of cost and time. As this would exceed the appropriate limit, as set out in Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act, my Council is exempt from providing the information you requested, in this particular instance.
