The planning inspectorate decided over 20,000 appeals cases in the year 2007-2008. Only 35% of the cases heard were allowed to proceed.
It is important to make as strong a case for yourself as possible in order to give the inspector all the relevant information to support your case.
Ecological Expert Witness
United Environmental Services have appeared as the ecological expert witness in a number of cases. These have ranged from public enquiries on behalf of borough councils through to criminal prosecutions in the crown court. The cases have varied between hedgerow removal disputes and the occupation of land by travellers, to the building of sports fields on green belt land and the construction of small airfields.
We provide survey, research and report writing services to support our clients. The information we can provide will make a marked difference to your case and may help to tip the balance in your favour.
Every case is different and we will only take a commission if we are satisfied that we can make a difference.
The Planning Inspectorate are responsible for the processing of planning and enforcement appeals and holding examinations into regional spatial strategies and local development plans. More information is available on their website.
