What to expect from the planning process in Slough

The timescale to get planning permission

The timescales for making a decision on planning applications are determined by the type of application.

Minor applications are determined within 8 weeks, major applications within 13 weeks, and applications accompanied by an environmental impact assessment are made within 16 weeks. The definition of a major or minor application is set nationally by the government.

This decision making time begins when all the information needed has been provided, and includes three weeks for consultations with specialist professionals and residents.
