What is a Planning Appraisal?

  February 28, 2023

If your property is a listed building or in a conservation area for instance, you may benefit from a Planning Appraisal to better understand how Planning Policies effect you or the attitudes of your Local Planning Department.

A Planning Appraisal is a review of a site or property in the context of Planning Policy. It looks at Local and National Planning Policy, prevailing attitudes, local trends and local decision making. The Appraisal is a report that sets out the technical planning context of a site or building and gives you a technical planning view of what may or may not be possible in planning terms. It allows you to get a sense of this without you having to commit to design fees first.

Generally, a Planning Appraisal is a “Desk Topdesk-top exercise” and so a site visit isn’t necessary, but one can be arranged if needs-benecessary.
