We offer a full planning appeals service for a fixed fee managed by planning experts.
Don’t let the planning system give you the impression it has to be a costly and complex legal process. Like many things in life if you are an expert in that field then you are able to complete that work efficiently and effective. At HEAL Planning Appeals we aim to take the ambiguity out of the planning appeal system offering a solution that allows us to appeal on your behalf to the independent Planning Appeals Inspectorate.
Over the past three years there have been over 49,000 planning appeals lodged in England and Wales with an average success rate of only just over 30%. This emphasises the need for you to instruct a professional planning appeal company as the vast majority of people try and handle their appeal by themselves or use people who do not have experience in this area of work. It is specialist in nature and the best results can be achieved by those who understand and work in the system.
The Councils Decision Does Not Have to Be Final!
Just because the planning committee at your local council decided to refuse your planning application it does not have to be the end of the matter! You have the right to appeal against it to the Planning Inspectorate. This is where we are able to help and take over the process for you. We have in-depth understanding and knowledge gained over many years of how Councils work, the planning system and what areas to evaluate in the processing, decision making and content of refusal reasons to deal with the appeal. Sometimes the Council may have approved your planning application but with onerous conditions or restrictions all of which can also challenged by us on your behalf through the appeal system.
Time is literally ticking
Just to make things more difficult for you there is a restricted period in which you can make an appeal which is 6 months for a full planning application and for smaller proposals known as Householder Applications it is only 12 weeks from the date of the decision notice to refuse. So please do act quickly!
Mistakes cost appeals
Instructing a professional organisation such as ourselves will help achieve your best chance of success as the legal requirements and technical language utilised by planning authorities can be confusing if you are not used to them and that confusion could lead to your appeal being dismissed and we would want to give you every chance of getting it approved.
HEAL Planning Appeals was established to deal with this process. Our Director of Planning Dr Robin Hooper LLB LLM Phd FCIS has over 35 Years experience of dealing with all types of planning proposal and leading on planning matters within Councils as well as acting for planning applicants. His unique experience in this area presents our clients with the benefits of accessing that knowledge and experience for a fixed fee. Normally to have access to someone who has been Director of Planning as a qualified solicitor as a national law firm which acted for household name developers and companies would cost hundreds of pounds an hour. Robin has also been chief executive of three councils and worked for others at Director level in various parts of the country. Not only that but he established the fixed fee planning concept over ten years ago and in various capacities has dealt with many varied cases.
If you would like to appeal against the refusal of your planning application then do not waste any time please engage us today and we can then accept your formal instruction to begin the work for you. Remember time is short!
