Planning Appeals for refused applications in Abbey Hey, Manchester. 

Following the refusal of your planning application, did you know that under planning law you have the right to a planning appeal against the council’s decision. We can guide you through the planning appeal process and provide professional advice. The Planning Inspectorate is completely independent to your local Borough Council and has the power to disregard local planning policies if they do not agree that they are relevant in a particular planning application.

Here at HAD & CO we specialise in submitting appeal statements that details the arguments against the council’s planning refusal reasons. Our appeal would most likely contain an analysis of relevant National, Regional and Local planning policies and an assessment of how they can be applied to support the grant of planning permission, as well as a description of any suitable planning appeal precedents, for example buildings within the local area that have been granted planning consent for a similar proposal.

After submission of the written representations planning appeal, the Planning Inspectorate generally take around 4 to 6 months to decide the appeal based on the information submitted in the appeal statement. The written representations planning appeal is recommended for the majority of schemes that do not have a high degree of complexity.

Our team at HAD is able to prepare and submit a planning appeal that specifically deals with the salient points of your refused planning permission. Our experience enables us to pick up any weaknesses within the council’s planning refusal notice and counter them with a strong, professionally prepared planning argument.

Alternatively, a planning application may benefit from a “free go” within 12 months of your first submission to submit a further application without re-paying the council fee, usually if a planning application is made following an application which has been withdrawn or refused. At HAD we can look in to addressing the reasons for refusal and resubmitting an application on your behalf.

We at HAD & CO are well positioned to advise on whether a refused planning application can be modified and re-submitted or if a planning appeal should be proceeded with.
