Appeal Planning Application - How can we help?

The key to success for your planning appeal is to ensure that you meet the requirements for the local planners. If you find that you are not familiar with the terminology used by your local planners, or the requirements that they lay out for you, the entire application process can become cumbersome, as well as very daunting.

What we do is review your proposal, as well as the reasons for refusal, using our experience and expert knowledge in planning law we create a personalised written statement that is then submitted to the Planning Inspectorate. We will take care of all the meetings and discussions with both your local council and the planning inspector, as well as the whole appeal process up until the point of decision.

This helps to make it an experience that frees you from stress and further burden. By using the knowledge that our experts provide, you can save time, money, and also increase the chances of a successful appeal.

Timeframe for planning appealing.

For the planning applications made by a householder that have been refused for an extension to your house, conservatory, or outbuilding, you have 12 weeks to appeal from the date of the decision. The same time period applies to the refusal of a householder prior approval, as well as minor commercial applications.

In the case of refused planning applications (excluding householder and minor commercial applications), you have six months. An example of this would be applying for a new dwelling or a change of use to a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO). For advertisement consent applications you have 8 weeks from the date of the refusal to appeal, but for Certificate of lawful development (existing/proposed) applications, there is no time limit..

We contacted Local-2u Planning to help with our planning appeal somewhat confused and dazed by the whole planning procedure,
we were really surprised by the speed in which our enquiry was replied to.
They explained what could be done and the appeals procedure in layman’s terms, which thankfully simplified the jargon and technicalities for us.
Throughout their customer care and professionalism has been faultless and we would definitely recommend their services.

Kind regards
Gary & Tanya


I cannot recommend this services enough! Our council refused our initial application for a drop kerb which made our lives (especially my wife's) extremely difficult as we have two small children.

We were told  we had strong grounds for an appeal, subsequently,  appealed the case and to our delight, the decision was overturned.

We were updated  of the appeal progress every step of the way and was very happy to answer all my questions and give added support after the appeal was excepted.

He dealt with things like a real gentleman and was really easy to communicate with, I cannot express our thanks enough and I would strongly recommend his services to anyone in a similar situation.

 In my case I instructed them after my planning application had been refused by our local planning office (RCT).

This was no normal planning application as it related to the siting and erection of bespoke amateur Radio Antennas at my home address.

 As soon as I received my planning rejection notice I contacted LJ through the ‘Contact Form’ on their website and somebody called me back within 10 minutes!!.

 After a lengthy conversation, it was clear I was dealing with a true professional who not only knew the appeal process but was familiar with the national and local planning laws which would help fight my complicated case.

 After the initial fact-finding calls the whole process was processed through the system by them with minimal interaction by me.

 Throughout the appeal, I was kept up to date with its progress even to the congratulatory telephone call from them when the decision notice was issued.

 First Class service from the very beginning – Highly Recommended !!!
