Planning Appeals

On occasion planning applications are unsuccessful or not determined within the required timescales and you have the right to submit an appeal to the Secretary of State. There are 3 types of appeal:

  • Written Representations; or
  • Informal Hearing; or
  • Public Inquiry.

If you are interested in pursuing an appeal, we can advise on the prospects for a successful challenge and can help you choose the appropriate appeal route. As well as advising on and preparing your appeal case, we can represent you at an informal appeal hearing and in the case of a planning inquiry, we can instruct Counsel and provide expert witnesses.
