Hours in the day.

According to reports in todays @planningmag Cornwall is the next council to introduce pre-application charges.

According to statements the Council spends 27000 hours per year dealing with 4000 or so pre-application advice requests per year. 6.75 hours per average enquiry (or 2 working days in typical planning office speak) seems staggeringly inefficient in itself but that 27k man hours = 14 FTE of staff is shome mishtake shurely (c) private eye
