Some £3bn worth of construction work was delayed or halted by planning appeals during the first nine months of 2012, according to industry analyst Glenigan.
Glenigan has identified 494 planning applications that have gone to appeal in the first nine months of 2012.
The vast majority of applications going to appeal are residential projects, accounting for 354 projects or 72% of the total. In value terms 62% or £1.8bn of the applications going to appeal are residential schemes.
Infrastructure accounts for just 10 projects with a combined value of £17M.
