The number of planning applications in England plunged in the last quarter of 2008, according to the latest figures released by the UK Statistics Authority

Figures reveal that applications received by district-level planning authorities fell by 26 per cent compared to the same period in 2007.

District-level planning authorities also saw a 22 per cent drop in the number of applications decided (granted or refused) when compared to the same quarter a year ago, while decisions on planning applications for residential developments decreased by 25 per cent in the quarter to December 2008.

Furthermore, just 361 applications were received by county level planning authorities, which represents a decline of seven per cent.
