The Planning Inspectorate (PINS) will decide whether to deal with your appeal by way of inquiry, hearing or written representations, and increasingly, they are dealing with appeals by way of hearings or written representation, rather than going to inquiry. Can you appeal against the route? Is it worth it?
Whatever your route, you have to understand how the planning appeal will be judged, what you must do to prepare in advance and know how you must give evidence to be effective in presenting your case.
We give practical advice and tips from our own three experiences as planners/lawyers.
In 2015-2016 11,783 planning appeals were received. Of those that were received 1,298 were major development appeals, 7,119 were minor development appeals, 1,501 were change of use appeals, 1,308 were household appeals and 557 were unclassified.
