Planning Appeals

Yes - some applications are refused planning permission. If you have been on the receiving end there is a right to appeal against the decision which will then determined by the Planning Inspectorate.

We assess each case to ensure that all other options have been explored as sometimes additional discussion with your planning department is all that is required.

In other situations, an in-principle objection and appeal is the only way forward.

As there are various forms of appeal, we can help you choose the best way to succeed, and our access to case law and appeal precedents, along with our own experience, will help to construct a robust and persuasive appeal.

Land Promotion

Sylfaen Associates regularly promote vacant land and brown-field sites as potential development sites on behalf of landowners and developers and offer a variety of services and packages.

We can work in a traditional consultancy role, but can also offer a Promotion Agreement. This is where we take on some or all of the risks to achieve a greater returns for the landowner but would be reimbursed once a planning allocation or consent is achieved.
