Appeals Process


If your planning application has been unreasonably rejected, we will appeal the decision of the local planning authority on your behalf. We pay all the costs of making an appeal and Greystoke manages the case through the statutory appeals process. We instruct barristers, planning consultants and expert witnesses.


If the appeal is successful, you receive planning permission for the scheme which had earlier been rejected. We only receive our fee once your permission is secured.


If the appeal fails, you don’t pay anything. You also retain your land with a clear explanation from an independent inspector of the deficiencies in the original scheme. If you choose to bring the site forward again,  you can address the inspector’s concerns.



Guided by Anthony Crean QC, with over 30 years of experience contesting appeals, we offer a flexible and creative approach to the appeals process. Greystoke finances and manages all types of appeal, including written representations, hearings and planning inquiries. We manage and fund appeals for many types of developments, including residential, commercial and mixed-use projects.
