Planning Appeals: Practice and Materials

Planning Appeals: Practice and Materials cover


A concise collation of the relevant materials for each relevant stage of an appeal. Taking costs applications as an example, it brings together: the statutory basis for a costs award; the relevant procedure rules; the guidance in the National Planning Practice Guidance; summaries or extracts example costs decisions which show how particular points are often decided and provides commentary and observations.

Preparing. Provides a step by step guide to framing a case, supporting it with effective evidence and advice on how to avoid pitfalls.

Giving evidence. The focus of any appeal is the inquiry or hearing. The function of the inquiry and its key elements have to be understood in order to be effective within it. It covers the benefits of a good examination in chief; what can be achieved during cross examination and how are you (as witness, client, solicitor) going to contribute; does re-examination matter and how does all this relate to what is said ultimately in closing submissions?

The Rosewell Review. Provides detailed explanation of the impact of the Rosewell Review.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Planning Law online service.
