Answer

YOUR INFORMATION REQUEST (REFERENCE FOI 3981) RECEIVED ON 21 FEBRUARY 2014

Thank you for your recent information request regarding planning applications which the Council’s Development Control service has considered. 
The Council does not record information in this form; the information would need to be gathered and collated from each individual planning application.   Charnwood Borough Council received approximately 2500 planning applications in 2013 and therefore the time required to locate and retrieve information in order to provide all the information you have requested would exceed the appropriate limit for dealing with requests set out in section 12 of the Act and the Appropriate Limit and Fees Regulations. 
The Council would normally wish to offer suggestions as to how some of the information could be provided or how a differently worded request could result in information being provided within the terms of the Act and the Regulations.  However due to the complexity of the information requested in this case in relation to the way in which the Council holds information this does not appear possible in this case. 

Information regarding planning applications is available via our Planning Explorer webpages: http://portal.charnwood.gov.uk/Northgate/PlanningExplorerAA/Home.aspx
