Planning Appeals and Expert Witness

Planning appeals

Sometimes, despite all our best efforts, a planning case officer will refuse an application. If this happens we will guide you through the reasons for refusal and advise you on your options for next steps.

Based on our extensive experience and knowledge of planning case law, we may advise you to appeal the case officer’s decision.

Our team of planning consultants have developed strong and well established working relationships with a trusted team of wider experts to assist in your appeal. We bring together Barristers, Highways Consultants, Ecologists, Sustainability Consultants, Arboriculturist; Landscape Architect and Visualisers where needed to support an appeal.

We don’t run free with our client’s money, if we have advised you that there is a case for appeal then we truly think that you have a chance for success and that decision is based on our expertise that will steer you through the preparation, submission and management of the appeal process.

Our planning appeal and expert witness work includes:

  • Developing a customised appeal strategy

  • Managing professional teams, including the coordination of proofs of evidence
