Developing Land, Stage 3: I've had planning refused

Having a planning application refused can seem like the end of your journey, but it’s often just the start. We can help you take things in a new direction.

There are several routes to follow. Firstly, you could submit a planning appeal, or you can take a more measured approach and consider the reasons for the refusal. Very often a planning decision notice with a refusal will give you the guidance needed to overcome the most pressing issues and once these have been dealt with, a subsequent application won’t be too harshly contested.

A high proportion of planning applications are refused first time, so please don’t give up. We can help you reappraise the scheme, and perhaps help you find a buyer who will take on the challenge of getting the planning consent themselves. Alternatively, you may find yourself working in collaboration with a potential buyer on the basis that, once the planning application is granted, they’ll proceed with the purchase.

The bottom line here is not to give up. We can give you the answers and support you need, and all it takes is a conversation. Speak to our team today.
