Firstly it is important to see if your case would be better tackled by a revised application. We are able to offer a desk top appraisal of your case and offer advice on the best course of action initially.
We are a fresh pair of eyes on your project, so if we do not consider an appeal is the best route for your proposal we will advise accordingly.
We offer bespoke fees rates for appeals on a case by case basis.
The Planning Inspectorate does not currently charge a fee for processing an appeal; except enforcement appeals in certain circumstances.
There are three types of appeal:
Whilst we undertake all types of appeal, 99.9% of our appeal work is by the written representation method as it’s the most simple and quickest method of appealing.
We offer a 2-3 week turnaround from instruction to submission of the appeal.
For a premium we are able to offer an expedited turnaround service which, in most cases, could be less than 24hrs. [this would need to be assessed on a case by case basis and dependant on other deadlines for that period].
The Planning Inspectorate aim to issue a decision for householder appeals within 8 weeks of the start date of the appeal and for written representation planning appeals within 16 weeks of the start date of the appeal.
In most instances a site visit from our team is not essential. However should you consider it would be more practical to meet on site, we can offer a site visit advice service.
Once your appeal is in the system the Planning Inspector will visit all appeal sites. In most cases these are unaccompanied.
