870,000 planning applications have been submitted since 2017, resulting in nearly two million objections.
Churchill Home Insurance have advised due to homeowners wanting to expand their homes and as cities develop amenities to cope with the ever changing needs, planning departments across the country are inundated with 893 applications each day.
Head of Churchill home insurance, said: “The environment in which we live is constantly evolving. Whether it be homes needing to expand for growing families or changes to towns and cities to cope with demands, planning permission is at the forefront of it all. Although many new developments like hospitals and car parks are used by most of society, it is understandable that people would not want them to be situated close to their home. Not everyone can afford to or wants to move, so often we are left with no choice but to complain about the unwanted facility.
