Planning analysed data provided by our sister service COMPASS Online on appeals for housing schemes in England from 2017-20.

It showed that 78 per cent of Taylor Wimpey’s appeals that were determined, or formally concluded through court proceedings, in the period were allowed.

In second and third places were fellow housebuilders Bellway and Persimmon, which respectively saw 75 per cent and 68 per cent of their appeals allowed.

Strategic land companies, which promote land through the planning system to achieve allocations and permissions, also feature prominently in the table. The strategic land company with the best appeal record in the period, at 62.5 per cent, was Hollins Strategic Land, followed by Hallam Land Management at 57 per cent.
