Local Planning Authorities success rates for planning appeals

Easily check your LPA's performance on planning appeals for 2023/24 and the previous year using the 2 tables below. For comparison purposes, the English averages for 2023/24 for s78 appeals was 28%; for householder appeals was 37%; and for enforcement appeals was 26%. Last year's table is distinguished by orange headings.

When interpreting your LPA’s figures, bear in mind it will reflect the year's mix of developments for that local planning authority and the proportion of hearings & inquiries. Obviously, the % allowed is less reliable as a guide when there is only a small number decided.  The larger the number of appeals decided, the more useful the statistics are in building a picture of the LPA's likelihood of success.

The percentage of appeals allowed by named Inspector can be found here.
