Planning Appeals

If you have recently had a planning application refused, then you have the right to appeal that decision to the planning inspectorate. Usually your planning appeal is to be submitted within 6 months or 12 weeks in the case of a householder appeal.

KVA Planning Consultancy has a breadth of experience in how the planning system works and how the decision makers think having previously held positions in Local Government planning departments, which allows us to put your planning appeal across in the strongest possible way. KVA is therefore ideally placed to identify and take advantage of any weakness in the refusal, plus draw careful attention to the strengths of the case in ways that will give the best opportunity for a successful appeal.

The Supporting Planning Statements

The most important element to any planning appeal will be the Supporting Planning Statement. KVA statements are never a template from past appeals, but will deal with the key issues of your case, addressing their relevant policies (both national & local) and set out the planning grounds in favour of your proposal, whilst also addressing any tricky points that a case may present. This level of detail is often the area that wins the appeal.

There are three ways in which an appeal can take place. These are:
  • Written Representation
  • Informal Hearing
  • Public Inquiry

KVA will always suggest the most suitable form of planning appeal based on your requirements.

KVA Planning Consultancy’s Process for an Appeal

After investigating all the points of your application, KVA will provide you with an honest assessment of your situation and whether a planning appeal would be likely to be successful. KVA can process every stage of your planning appeal and services would typically include:

  • A site visit by the planner dealing with the case and detailed consultation with you.
  • All necessary liaisons with your Council and the Planning Inspectorate.
  • All necessary research including Council and Government policies and other decisions which may be relevant to your case.
  • Preparation and submission of all documentation.
  • Presentation of your case either by a full supporting statement or orally at a hearing or public enquiry if required.
  • Usually we accompany the Planning Inspector during their visit to inspect your property.

Please contact us for an initial discussion regarding your case.
