Our planning appeals service


Our planning appeals service

Of the 85,000 planning applications which were refused in the UK in 2010/2011, just 16,547 were challenged via an appeal to The Planning Inspectorate (PINS). With roughly 34% of appeals being allowed by PINS each year, it can be deduced that a large number of applicants are missing out on planning approvals they could potentially have secured, had they chosen to appeal.

Get Planning offers a responsive service to both domestic and commercial planning applicants across the UK who wish to contest planning decisions and enforcement notices issued by Local Planning Authorities. Our team includes accredited planning consultants whose wealth of experience in local authority development control means your appeal will be handled by professionals who are proficient in this field.

Since the company’s inception, we have represented a wide range of clients at appeal, including householders, property developers, medical professionals and religious organisations. We have had a significant amount of success in winning appeals in respect of the following:

  • Residential extensions and alterations
  • Conversion of houses into flats
  • Outbuildings and extensions within the Green Belt
  • Changes of use resulting in the loss of employment space
  • Proposals for places of worship and community facilities
  • Enlargement of commercial buildings
  • The variation / removal of planning conditions.
  • Appeals in respect of planning enforcement

What can you appeal against?

An appeal can be submitted by an applicant in respect of the majority of planning related decisions made by a local planning authority, this includes:

  • Planning applications for development
  • Applications for consent to display advertisements
  • Applications for works to listed buildings
  • Applications for works in conservation areas
  • Application for certificate of lawful use or development
  • Applications for works to trees covered by a tree protection order
  • Against an enforcement notice requiring remediation of a breach of planning control

Appeals are an important part of what we do here at Get Planning and Architecture. Our highly dedicated appeals team, including Chartered planning consultants has years of experience in guiding both home and business owners and property developers through the appeals process.
