"Statistics published by the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) show that it has
more than 12,526 open cases – its highest number in the past 12 months.

According to the report, the number of receipts averages at more than 1,700
each month over the past 12 months and the average number it closed works
out at just below 1,700 a month during the same period.

Over the last year, PINS made 18,075 appeal decisions – more than 1,500 a
month. Fewer decisions were issued in the months of August 2020, April
2021, July 2021 and August 2021. "This is thought to be due to the impact
of national lockdowns, in respect of August 20, and the impact of staff
taking more annual leave in 2021 than in 2020," the report explains.

Of the decisions made, 17,067 were made on written representations, which
is about 95 per cent of all appeal decisions made. The report finds that
written representation decisions had recovered to pre-pandemic levels
between October and December 20, when the number of decisions made stood
between approximately 1,600 and 2,000 decisions per month.

In the last 12 month, 623 decisions were made on hearings and 385 decisions
made on inquiries.
