Over the last three years over 40,000 retrospective planning applications have been made across England and Wales. Some clients find that they’ve made a genuine mistake during building works and need to apply, or otherwise the Council or neighbours may have found that your development does not match up to, or does not have any, planning permission.
In any case, if your retrospective planning application has been refused, you need specialist help as soon as possible. You may face an enforcement notice and as such will need to rethink your approach.
Retrospective planning appeals are very different from the application itself. At this point, you need a definitive win, or your development could be in jeopardy.
When should I seek retrospective planning permission?
If your retrospective application was refused and you do not appeal, there is a very high chance that you will receive an enforcement notice. But if you appeal prior to receiving an enforcement notice, you will save money!
HEAL Planning Appeals will look for a solid reason why your retrospective planning application should be approved. This could be:
- Previous precedence of other appeals
- National Planning Policy Framework
- Local planning and policies
