This planning application is noteworthy as the planning process has been different to the usual planning process. The planning application was submitted via the Planning Portal in the usual way and you expect the application to be registered within a few days. In this case it wasn't and I called to chase it. I learnt that the Authority in question, Blaby DC, have a different approach. The Case Officer doesn't register the application until they are ready to deal with it. Once registered the process went very smoothly. We had a site meeting two weeks ago where I was advided that subject to no adverse comments by the end of the consultation period (October 25th) a decision would be issued thereafter. The planning permission was granted today and received by email. It is good to experience the planning system working effectively.
