Our understanding and knowledge of the planning system enables us to provide our clients with well-informed, reliable and up-to-date advice to guide them through the complexities of the planning appeals process.
Following our initial assessment of the decision we will advise on the most suitable appeals procedure to pursue and will manage the whole process accordingly. This involves producing all of the necessary documentation and evidence that is required to challenge the weaknesses of the refusal and to construct a robust planning argument in favour of approval. Where it is necessary, we will also represent clients at hearings and public inquiries.
Lumbers were delighted when Astill Planning helped with planning advice for our relocation to the High Street. Having difficulties with the Conservation Officer, Astill Planning professionally and diligently took on the Council and ensured that common sense prevailed. Certainly Lumbers owe a great deal of gratitude to the Astill Planning team as the alternatives were not worth consideration.
