Hello, new here. Is there a timescale on a decision for LCWRA after assessment? It’s been 4 weeks so far. Thankyou

    Up to 12 weeks after the report was returned. If you have access to a journal once the decision is made a letter will be uploaded onto there.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @bruno12, welcome to the community. I hope you're doing well today :)

    As Poppy mentioned above, it could be up to 12 weeks and it varies case by case. It's horrible waiting, but unfortunately it can take some time to come through. We're always here if you need a rant or have any more questions, though.

    Hope you get your decision through soon!
