APPEALS (The Three Modes)

A specialist area and the essence is to deal with the actual reasons for refusal as distinct from the perceived ones. Any neighbour objections to your application or those from the Parish or Town Council must be addressed and a firm strategy on any positive consultation responses honed to support an appeal. There are three forms of appeal.

  • 1. Written Representations.
  • 2. Informal Hearings.
  • 3. Public Enquiries.

The decision upon which one can be undertaken, to a large extent, now rests with the Planning Inspectorate. Nevertheless, PPS would always recommend an appeal process whereby there is an opportunity and ability to discuss planning merits, if only by a round-table hearing. The phrasing of appeal documentation is essential to access each mode detailed above.
