Cost of Appeals

Request

 The amount of legal costs incurred by your council as a result of appeals arising from the council\'s planning decisions.  Please note, I expect you to include all fees arising from using council staff and time as well as fees paid to external companies, (for example to lawyers or solicitors).

Please break down the details by individual appeal, including the name of the appellant, developer and proposed development and the number of appeals (if more than one).

Please include a separate category detailing the legal costs incurred by the council from appeals arising from the council\'s planning decisions on wind turbines or wind farms.

Please break down the details by individual appeal, including the name of the appellant, developer and proposed wind farm, and the number of appeals (if more than one).

 

Response

Freedom of Information Request – Cost of Appeals
I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act and apologise for the delay in replying to you.
I am afraid that my Council does not keep a specific record of legal costs in relation to appeals against planning decisions.Accordingly I am unable to provide you with a detailed breakdown on individual appeals.
Even if there had been a record this would have related to overall costs rather than individual cases.
In answer to the second part of your enquiry in respect of wind turbines or wind farms Brentwood Borough Council has never dealt with an appeal for either of these forms of development.
