Have you been refused planning permission? Are you aggrieved by a planning condition or do you wish to challenge a planning agreement or obligation?
Our specialist planning staff are ready to discuss your situation, advise on possible outcomes, and prepare the best case possible. Please contact Colin Mackenzie MRTPI, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 01463-237229 for an appraisal of your case and prospects.
Any applicant refused planning permission by a Committee decision of the planning authority may appeal that decision through the Scottish Government Department of Planning & Environmental Appeals (DPEA). It is also possible to appeal planning conditions, planning agreements and other outcomes of planning legislation. The appeal will be considered by an independent Reporter appointed by the DPEA.
We offer a professional service in the presentation of appeal statements and evidence, having over 30 years experience of planning applications, development plan and policy work throughout the Highlands and across Scotland as a whole. We represent property developers, commercial operators, Highland estates, landowners and individual applicants as well as Architects and Property Agents.

appraise the reasons for refusal and advise on potential appeal outcome
promote the merits of the proposal
explain compliance with the development plan and policy
emphasise other material considerations

respond to the planning authority position and any objections
