Appeals

Smallscale & Householder Appeals Service

The NextPhase planning team specialise in planning appeals and through our years of experience have developed an efficient service ideal for smaller applications which have been refused permission by the local planning authority.

 

Appeals to planning decisions are received by The Planning Inspectorate, an independent governmental body who review decisions solely on the merits of the planning case and are not subject to any localised political or internal pressures. The appeal itself is a free service that takes around 26 weeks, however you are required to contest the reasons for refusal by way of a Statement of Case, best prepared by a planning professional.

 

To prepare and submit an appeal on your behalf we provide 2 fixed cost options. To see which option is best suited to your needs please see details provided below; depending on your case NextPhase will advise on the options available.

 

Option A

Our standard appeal service comprises of the following:

  • A desk based review by a member of the planning team
  • Submission and management of a written representations appeal to the Planning Inspectorate, including:
  • Preparation and production of a Statement of Case
  • Preparation and submission of the planning appeal
  • Preparation and Submission of Final Comments where required
  • A limited period of consultation time with the client or their associate (e.g. architect or agent) for the duration of the appeal

This service is great value for money and ideal for clients who would like to discuss the case in some detail and have contact with a member of our planning team during the appeal process.
