Whilst the objective is always to achieve planning permission at a local level, that is not always possible.

Our team has a long-standing reputation for appearing at Planning Appeals, in particular at Public Inquiries, representing appellants, local authorities and interested parties alike. Much of the important work is completed early in the appeal process and it is imperative that all evidence, from statement of case through to proofs of evidence, is prepared thoroughly.

Our members advise from an early stage, ensuring that any application and subsequent is as robustly prepared as possible to give the best possible chance of success at appeal.
