A subscription to Planning Appeals Tracker gives you:
The quickest, most comprehensive weekly update
Only appeals that are relevant to your chosen topic
A full editorial description and abstract of the appeal
Links to download the full decision document

Subscribers can choose to be kept up to date in any of 13 categories. Weekly email bulletins summarise appeals made in England, Scotland and Wales. Users have the opportunity to download the decisions online or request them through the customer service department.

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.
Benefits of Casework Tracker
Fast - appeals included will be at most 11 working days post decision date
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.
Save valuable time and money by allowing our team of experienced planning professionals to select the important planning appeals you need to know about.
