Planning Inspectors past performance on Planning Appeal Decisions

Ever been dismayed to see your planning application allocated to a development management officer with reputation for refusing development?  The sad fact of life is that not all officers are the same.  The question is, does the same apply to planning inspectors?

Does it matter which Inspector decides your appeal?

Of course every Inspector tries hard to be professional and fair.  Nevertheless, Inspectors are human too and naturally each has their own personality, perspective and unique experience of life.  Furthermore, the planning system is not a simple matter of applying tick-box assessments and clear rules; subjective judgements are required. Ultimately decision-making is down to the individual. Who the decision maker is does matter.

The Planning Inspectorate's annual statistics for each individual Planning Inspector are reproduced below so you can see the % appeals allowed by your appointed Inspector over 12 months.  Please note this is only a reliable indicator where there are a significant number of appeals. The smaller the number of appeals, the less useful is the data.  For example, if the number of appeals is less than 10 in any one category, the results will reflect the nature of the individual appeals more than the individual inspector.  

Please note PINS’ caveats on use of the data detailed at the bottom of the table. They emphasise that all Inspectors must abide by rules of impartiality and that casework is allocated on the best balance of availability, geography, casework level and expertise.  This may produce apparent patterns of outcome that are in fact artefacts of the way work is allocated and do not provide evidence as to an Inspector’s fitness for or approach to a particular case.  Please bear these important caveats in mind when interpreting the % of appeals approved.

Understanding your planning Inspector

It’s worth looking at previous appeal Decisions made by your nominated Inspector on developments similar to your own case, as it may highlight your Inspector’s thinking processes.  For example, one Inspector may have a particular focus on design issues while another may emphasise landscape impact.  A quick read of 5 – 10 previous decisions by your Inspector will help you understand their perspective better.  It is particularly valuable to look at those appeals they have dismissed, so you can be better prepared to respond to the LPA’s Statement of Case in a manner that it also likely to address your Inspector’s likely concerns. To find appeals by your nominated Inspector, search by Inspector using Appeal Finder’s search.

PINS notes accompanying the above data:  

1. A decision maker is listed in the above table if they have made at least one decision in the relevant period. Cases where the Inspector reported to the Secretary of State are not included.       
2. We deal with our casework following the principles of fairness, openness and impartiality.  Our decisions take account of: • published national, regional and local policies, • relevant planning issues and material considerations; and • published national, regional and local policies, • the views of all the parties.       
3. Decision Makers are bound by the Code of Conduct        www.gov.uk/government/publications/code-of-conduct
4. Please note that the Planning Inspectorate will not entertain a challenge to the appointment of any Decision Maker on the basis of this data.    5. For your information - All cases are considered on their individual merits, and on the basis of the evidence submitted. - Targets are not set for the percentage of allowed and dismissed cases. - Decision Makers do not select their own casework.  - Casework is allocated to Decision Maker on the best balance of availability, geography, casework level and expertise.  This may produce apparent patterns of outcome that are in fact artefacts of the way work is allocated and do not provide evidence as to an Inspector's fitness for or approach to a particular case. - Decision Makers handle different numbers of cases in a year – some dealing with as few as one which would give a result of 100% allowed or 100% dismissed.  All instances in the following tables where the result is in whole percentage points are likely to be a result of a very small number of cases. - Decision Makers are rigorously trained to ensure that they develop and maintain the skills necessary to undertake the work that they are given.  These skills will influence the type of cases they deal with. -  Some appeals are linked together as they relate to the same or similar development on the same site – where this is the case it is likely that they will have a similar outcome, but each has been treated separately for the production of the percentages. - The Inspectorate has an exacting Ministerial target which requires all casework to be 99% free from justified complaint or legal challenge. - A Decision Maker constitutes a selected person appointed to carry out: open, impartial, honest decisions on behalf of the Secretary of State.       
6. Enforcement Notice Appeals % allowed includes the following outcomes - Allowed, Planning permission granted, Quashed on Legal Grounds, Notice Quashed, Split Decision, Enforcement Notice Withdrawn During Inquiry.
