Casework Tracker

Casework Tracker is a email service that delivers the most significant appeals each week across all areas of development (from satellite dishes to new settlements and from retail to renewable energy). The appeals are selected and abstracted by experienced planning professionals, based on their legal interest or where inspectors have arrived at interesting interpretations.

  • Comprehensive

  • Full appeal downloads included in the subscription at your selected level

  • Key issues highlighted - all decisions include a full abstract

  • Customised to your requirements at no additional cost. For example, if you are only interested in housing appeals then we can make sure this is all you receive.
