Our Planning Appeals Service
Of the 90,000 or so planning applications which are refused in the UK every year, only about 15,000 are 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, (perhaps 75,000), are missing out on a chance to get planning approvals they could potentially have secured, had they chosen to appeal.
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
