Experts in Listed Building Appeals
Our clients benefit from our wide range of knowledge and expertise, which helps prepare and manage the appeal process in an effective manner.
Dr David Hickie was formerly Assistant Regional Director with English Heritage (now called Historic England) before setting up Heritage Matters. He is a Full Member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and a Member of the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.
Often we are called in to help when clients need to appeal against refusals or enforcement notices. We can help work through the issues, attend meetings, advise on the best course of argument for the appeal and prepare the all documents required for the process.
We also work as expert heritage witnesses for Councils wanting to challenge appeals by developers.
The appeal process is independent of the local Council and is run by the Planning Inspectorate based in Bristol.
We can submit the appeal for you using the Planning Inspectorate’s Electronic Portal and deal with any queries from the Inspectorate or Council.
Heritage Matters specialise in helping client’s with complex planning and design issues and we can provide a one-stop solution for you.
