Planning: Retail Appeals & Sunday Trading

Busy retail park

In the past 12 months alone, AAD has serviced four planning appeals on behalf of retail clients facing planning refusals. All four appeals were upheld, with two having cost awards against the Council. One landmark inquiry related to Sunday trading where, despite opposing expert evidence, the Council's 'noise and disturbance' reasoning became exposed as fundamentally groundless.
