Planning appeals

Where the local planning authority refuses, fails to determine the application within the statutory time frames or imposes unacceptable planning conditions, an appeal to secure planning permission may become necessary. This can be made to the Secretary of State and will be dealt with by way of:

  • Written representations.
  • An informal hearing.
  • A public inquiry.

Our planning team have substantial experience dealing with all procedures whether as acting for advocates in the appeal, managing the appeal team, or working alongside Counsel from leading planning chambers.
