Answer

Thank you for your recent information request  which the Council has considered;  However while the information requested is held by the Council in the form of individual planning applications it is not held in a manner which enables the information you requested to be collated easily.  The time required to locate and retrieve information regarding how many of the approximately 10,000 applications received since 2010, are for home extensions 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. 

We may be able to provide the information requested in question 2 regarding appeals, however this would be a standalone figure so would not provide any context to the information.  If you would like to receive the figures requested in question 2 please let me know.
