The right of appeal is one of the most important features of the planning system and planning appeals form a significant part of our workload. Often architects will approach us to appeal when things have gone wrong with an application. But an appeal can also be a key part of a planning strategy – sometimes you don’t know if you have maximised the development potential of a site unless you have tested the limits on appeal. Sometimes an appeal is the only way of overcoming a local “political” objection.

Don’t forget you only get 6-months to appeal a planning decision (12 weeks for a householder application) so if you have recently had a refusal don’t delay call Pure Town Planning for advice.
