Where an application has been refused or where an enforcement notice has been served, Atticus Planning can prepare and submit a planning appeal on your behalf.
Our team of Planning Appeals Specialists can assist in the following types of appeals:
- Planning appeals
- Householder appeals
- Enforcement appeals
- Listed building appeals
- Lawful development certificate appeals
Planning appeals include where permission has been refused, where the local planning authority has failed to make a decision (non-determination) or where prior approval has been refused.
Planning appeals can be determined by way of written representations, informal hearings or public inquiries. Sometimes it is appropriate to include third-party specialist input as part of the appeal. In some cases, there may be a need to involve a planning barrister; we are experienced in having consultations with Counsel and working alongside planning barristers throughout the appeal process. We can advise on the level of third-party input required for your appeal.
In some cases, it may be that appealing a planning decision is not the best route for you, and instead, it may be more appropriate to resubmit your application with an amended scheme.
Our Planning Appeals Specialists can review your decision notice and advise on the best planning strategy to increase your chances of securing planning permission.
