Planning Appeals for England and Wales are dealt with by the Planning Inspectorate, there being an online appeals service available.
First you will need to check that the type of appeal you want to make can be submitted using the online service and that your computer meets the required system requirements.
It is also a good idea to check that you have the right to make an appeal (on the grounds you want to) before using the online service.
The PlanningPortal.co.uk website provides a host of information on the entire process, many of them taking the form of PDF’s and together will take some reading and understanding. In some cases therefore you may need some legal or other assistance to make sense of it all.
However, one thing that you can do is to fully prepare in the first instance and here the Promap website can assist there being data on Local Plans:-
Planning is about how we can plan for, and make decisions about, the future of towns, cities and countryside. The government has passed the main responsibility for planning to local authorities who are responsible for deciding whether a development should go ahead. Every local authority in England has a Local Plan which contains information regarding the developments, timetables of production of key policy documents and statements of community involvement.
Through Promap, you are now able to view Local Plan information for a specific area detailing development plans and greenbelt areas that may affect decision making.
