The enormous backlog in determining planning appeals has been reined in to relatively normal levels, the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) has claimed.

New statistics published by the government show that the waiting list has fallen from 4,700 in November 2004 to about 600 recently. The lengthy delay was triggered by changes last year that saw a reduction in the time allowed to take schemes to appeal for non-determination from six months to three.

As a consequence, developers and architects overwhelmed PINS with appeals.
