Planning Inspectorate Appeals Search

Did you know computer-assisted humans make the best chess players? It's the combination of skilled human plus software that creates the most successful results. Likewise you can harness our powerful software tool and with skilled searching can find any planning appeal Decision Notice. To fine-tune your searching skills see our 'Search Tips'. With expert use Appeal Finder will save you time and effort.

Improve your planning appeal success rate

Whether you are writing an appeal Statement of Case or seeking to future-proof a planning application, we can help you improve your prospects of success in a planning appeal by making it easy to find out how planning inspectors have dealt with similar appeals.

If you are frustrated by the Planning Inspectorate's appeals casework portal, which no longer even allows you do a case search by description of development or by a wide date range, then Appeal Finder is for you. We have a comprehensive planning appeals decisions database that includes all PINS appeal decisions, including Secretary of State decisions and Appeal Costs Decisions. Unlike the competition, Appeal Finder's unique software doesn’t search abstracts of selected appeals but instead searches every planning appeal Decision Notice, giving you total freedom to define your own keywords.

Uniquely, Appeal Finder provides a map view which enables you to locate appeals geographically and to spot appeals you didn’t know existed.

For expert hints and tips on improving both planning appeals and planning applications, see our article on becoming a better planner and our blog page.
