Planning Appeals

You may appeal in a number of circumstances

  • If your planning application has been refused.
  • If conditions that you object to have been imposed on a permission.
  • If a decision has not been made within the 8 weeks of the submission of your application.
  • If you have been served with an enforcement notice.

  • Development Appraisals

    PHD offer advice on all aspects of the planning system including the fundamental question of the potential of the land.

    Questions such as:

  • Is the land suitable for development?
  • What are the planning restrictions?
  • What is the appropriate mechanism to maximise the use/value of the land?
  • Planning Applications

    Do your proposals require planning permission?
    If you need planning permission we can advise on the best way to present an application and can provide an inclusive package from initial concept through to planning application or appeal.


    Local Plan Representations

    The development plan is the key to any future plans you may have regarding your property. It is essential that landowners have an input into the development plan process in order to shape future planning policy. We can make representations on policies or to promote your land and appear at the Local Plan Inquiry in order to advocate changes in policy.
