Building control application time to approve

by jsmithy » Fri Feb 12, 2021 4:55 pm

I submitted a building control application on the Planning Portal last August (2020). It has been showing as 'Transferred' to the local authority, which is Royal Greenwich, ever since and I have heard nothing whatsoever despite chasing by email a couple of times.
I imagine Covid is causing some backlogs and many staff will be working from home, but how long should it take?
Most of the work described in the application has already been done by now.
