Number of days for planning application status to be changed (FOI)

Number of days for planning application status to be changed (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 19 January 2024.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Please advise the number of days for planning application status to be changed from the planning validated date as follows:

  • For each planning submission in the calendar year 2023
  • Show the application type (major application vs minor application)
  • How long in calendar days it took to change status between (Pending, Approved, Refused, Withdrawn), counting from the original planning validated date.


The planning team within Infrastructure and Environment does not maintain a register regarding the number of days taken to determine each application from the validated date.  The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data in order to provide a response. Therefore, Article 10 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.

However, the following information is accessible on within the planning register which will enable collation of the requested information for 2023.  Therefore, Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.

  • Validated date
  • Application type
  • Decision date
