    Smart Planning can provide you with a bespoke Planning Appeal strategy confirming which Appeal process will be most suitable to pursue.
    Different refusals demand different Appeal strategies and these are tailored to each case.

  • Submission of Appeal
    Smart Planning will prepare all of the Appeal documentation and submit this to the Planning Inspectorate. This also includes a comprehensive Statement of Case arguing the merits of you case.

  • Outcome of Appeal
    Smart Planning will monitor your Appeal and update you on its progress throughout the timetable. We will also attend the Appeal site visit where necessary and advise you of the decision.

The “right to reply” document is truly outstanding! Thanks for the tremendous work you have done on this.

I think that “Statement of Case” absolutely nailed it!!

I am firmly of the view that Smart Planning’s appeal submission was the deciding factor. It was a well-structured document and focused on all the key issues.

The comments made at the appeal hearing pay testament to the degree to which you prepared and presented the respective ‘special circumstances’. We are indebted to you having guided us through the seemingly impossible process.

I think your “Right to Reply” letter is great and it states all the facts clearly
