Listed Building & Conservation Area Appeal

Appeal in conservation areas

If you live in a Conservation Area and your planning application is refused or left undecided after the statutory 8 week period, you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate. Get Planning and Architecture have a proven track record in overturning planning refusals of planning applications in Conservation Areas.

To appeal a decision in a Conservation Area, you will normally follow the same procedure as you would for any other project. The main difference is the additional level of architectural and Heritage-based expertise that is needed for a planning appeal in a Conservation Area. In most cases a Householder, (or ‘fast-track’) appeal will not be permissible, therefore you can expect to wait 26 weeks or more for the appeal decision.

Appeal for listed buildings

If you have had an application for Listed Building Consent refused, then you should be able to appeal the decision.

Due to the sensitive character of planning for Listed Buildings and the complexities of the appeals process, preparing a successful Listed Building Appeal requires a large degree of professionalism, experience and knowledge.
