PINS has published a new guide to taking part in planning, listed building and conservation area consent appeals by written representation.
Planning Applications and Appeals
We can provide expert advise on whether the Council's planning officers and planning committee has followed the local planning authority's own planning policies or national policy and guidance such as the National Planning Policy Framework ("NPPF") and the National Planning Practice Guidance ("NPPG"). Perhaps political pressure has persuaded the planning committee to refuse planning permission against officer's advice.
As well as the substantive case, we can advise on costs applications. Planning appeal costs are awarded where the unreasonable conduct of a party has put another party to unnecessary work resulting in wasted costs.
