Planning resources

Received: 15 August 2022

Please see below for my FOI request:

How much has the council received in planning application fees in total for each of the last five financial years (2017/18 to 2021/22).

Can you provide the planning department budget for each of those years, and how much the department actually spent?

Can you provide the three figures in a spread sheet under headings: planning fee income, budget, actual spend (see attached for example).

Over the same period, can you provide a list of roles within the planning department and the month/year they became vacant, and how many months each role was vacant for?

Can you provide this information in a separate spreadsheet please (see attached for example).

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request, my details are outlined below.
