Previous application was refused.

Applications do fail however failing once is not an indicator that another application will fail. Certainly there may need to be some compromise along the way but a detailed review of the application can help identify why it failed, what is actually possible on the site and whether a fresh application or an appeal would provide get the best chance of success.

If we believe that the issues can be overcome via a resubmission we may also recommend going through a Pre-application discussion stage with the Local Planning Authority to ensure that any modifications proposed will be sufficient to overcome the refusal reasons.

In addition we will ensure that the submission material required, particularly if your site is likely to require an Ecological Assessment, Flood Risk Assessment or Arboricultural Assessment etc. is included.

If you make a resubmission for a similar scheme on the same site within a year of the refusal decision being made then you will be entitled to a further submission, as long as the scheme is the same or similar, without being required to pay a further planning application fee.
