How likely is it that my local council will grant planning permission?

It is impossible to give you an answer to this question, as planning officers look at each case individually and in particular how your space is related to the street and neighbours. There are also large variations in practice between councils. As part of our engagement with you, we will advise as how to best proceed to maximise your chances of success. And if it comes to an appeal, we have an enviable record of winning!
