Planning appeal services from Edith Garland

You’ve been planning your project in your mind for months and you’re excited about getting started on your renovations. You’ve submitted your planning application and you’re just waiting to hear back so you can move forward. So, it’s frustrating to find out that your planning application has been turned down.

However, just because your application has been rejected, it doesn’t mean you need to give up hope just yet. Planning decisions can be appealed and appeals can work fo your project.

What is a Planning Appeal?

In England and Wales, a planning appeal is submitted to a semi-independent Government body known as the Planning Inspectorate. The Planning Inspectorate employs independent planning inspectors who consider each planning appeal on a case by case basis. They will look at the evidence presented and determine whether to pass your planning appeal or let the original decision stand. Inspectors base this decision on whether your application is unreasonable. In our experience, inspectors take an unbiased, fair and considered approach to your appeal.

How Much Will a Planning Appeal Cost?

Less than you might think! Our experts will handle all the necessary paperwork to maximise the success of your appeal. Occasionally, a site visit may be required, but most often not. You do not have to pay for the work carried out by the Planning Inspectorate – just for our research and management of your case. We would be delighted to provide you with a quote.


Putting a Planning Appeal Together

Submitting a planning appeal usually requires some knowledge of planning law and the planning system in place at your local authority. Success also depends on the local authority’s ability to defend its decision. A planning appeal made to the Planning Inspectorate takes the decision out of the local authority’s hands and into the hands of an independent inspector.
