We offer a full planning appeals service for a fixed fee managed by planning experts.
Don’t let the planning system fool you into believing that 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 effectively. At HEAL Planning Appeals we aim to take the ambiguity out of the planning appeal system, by offering services that allow us to appeal on your behalf to the Planning Appeals Inspectorate.
Over the past three years, there have been over 49,000 planning appeals lodged in England and Wales, yet the average success rate is just over 30%. This shows just how important professional support can be for ensuring success. Most try and handle their appeal by themselves, or use professionals who don’t have enough experience in this area of work. Appealing for planning permission requires the expertise of those who have experience within the system.
The Council’s decision does not have to be final!
The local council’s refusal of your planning application does not have to be the end of your development project. You have the right to appeal against the decision to the Planning Inspectorate.
This is where we are able to help by taking care of the process for you. We have an in-depth understanding of how local councils work. We know the planning system from the inside out, so we understand what areas to evaluate in the processing, and what decision-making goes into a planning appeal refusal.
Sometimes the Council may have approved your planning application with onerous conditions or restrictions. We can also challenge these on your behalf, to allow your development to go ahead as you had originally envisioned it.
Remember that time is ticking…
Just to make things more difficult, there is a restricted period in which you can make an appeal. This 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, you must act quickly!
Why should I use an expert for my planning appeal?
Working with a professional organisation like HEAL Planning Appeals will help achieve your best chance of success. The technical language and legal requirements used by planning authorities can be confusing for a non-expert. This can lead to mistakes that can lead to your appeal being dismissed.
HEAL Planning Appeals was established to deal with this process. Our Director of Planning Dr. Robin Hooper has over 35 years of experience in dealing with all types of planning proposals and leading on planning matters within Councils. His extensive track record in this area gives our clients the benefits of expert knowledge and experience for a fixed fee.
Normally, access to someone with Robin’s experience would cost hundreds of pounds an hour. Robin has also been chief executive of three councils and worked for others as a Director level. Not only that, but he personally established the fixed fee planning concept over ten years ago.
If you would like to appeal against the refusal of your planning application, then do not waste time. Get in touch with us today for a free, no-obligation planning appeal consultation. Then, we can begin working on your case as soon as possible. Remember that time is short!
