The work of the Planning Inspectorate

The work of the Planning Inspectorate includes national infrastructure planning under the Planning Act 2008 process as amended by the Localism Act 2011; processing planning and enforcement appeals; holding examinations into local plans and community infrastructure levy charging schedules. The Inspectorate also deals with a wide variety of other planning related casework including listed building consent appeals, advertisement appeals, and reporting on planning applications called in for decision by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), or, in Wales, The Welsh Government. Other casework includes various compulsory purchase orders, rights of way cases and cases arising from the Environmental Protection and Water Acts and the Transport and Works, Act and other Highways Legislation. In addition, the Inspectorate processes applications for awards of costs which may arise from any of these.
