Planning Appeals

Planning appeals

Planning appeals are, by definition, stressful as they suggest that the original application has failed for some reason. We can help you through every stage of this process and bring the full weight of our planning and architectural design teams to address any problems or points of contention with the original planning application and help you secure planning approval.

A wealth of planning experience

Having worked in government planning departments at both local and national levels, our planning team are well versed in how to handle a successful planning appeal whether it is at local appeals committee or national government level. They can examine whether the grounds for rejection are justified and put together a robust case for the appeal. If modifications are needed, they can identify precisely who to deploy from our architectural, design and landscape architecture teams to carry out any refinements to reinforce the application and secure planning permission.

The full range of services to secure success

We will support you at site visits (if required), present at hearings and inquiries, review decisions, coordinate input, pull together robust appeal cases, manage the appeal process and seek expenses (where appropriate). Often, we undertake appeals for third parties and having the enhanced strength of a full-service practice behind the appeal has generally helped achieve a positive outcome.
