    How long does it take to get planning permission approval?


    Does it take significantly longer or shorter to get planning permission approval depending on the type of project in question? Could you provide some examples, please? Thank you!

    "It usually takes a minimum of 8 weeks. However you should first check to see if your project falls within permitted development. Check the local planning register for your address. It will also tell you what area etc is permitted.
