The records of the Planning Inspectorate (the board responsible for appeal applications) indicate that approximately one-third of planning appeals are successful, with this rate remaining relatively consistent over a significant period of time. This translates to approximately 33.33% – which is not an incredibly encouraging figure for those faced with rejection.

If you are concerned with the success of your planning application or have already faced rejection, employing a planning consultant is the best course of action. As professionals in the field of planning legislation, planning consultants are able to guide developers through the process of application and application alterations.
