HC Deb 13 December 1962 vol 669 c89W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what is the average time elapsing between the rejection of an application for planning permission to build and the subsequent decision on appeal.

Mr. Corfield

I have no figures to show the average time between the planning authority's decision on an application and submission of an appeal; but the average time taken from receipt of an appeal to decision is at present about 32 weeks.
