Planning appeal guide

At present about 80% of planning appeals are decided following an exchange of written representations and a site visit (the written method), 16% are decided following a hearing, and around 4% after an inquiry. We think that many of the appeals decided following a hearing could be dealt with equally well, and more quickly, by the written method without any reduction in the quality of the decision. Similarly, there are a small number of appeals that are decided following an inquiry that could be decided by the hearing procedure or occasionally by the written method.
