The Town Library

Planning Inspectorate – Data Visualisation

Town Legal has developed, with assistance from legal engineers Simmons Wavelength Limited, an interactive data visualisation tool to assist in showing statistics for planning appeals determined in England and Wales between 2014 and November 2023. The tool breaks down the data by date, outcome, appellant, housing numbers and/or local planning authority, and is interactive so users can click on the visualisations to explore the data in more depth.

This tool is currently at beta testing stage. We would be delighted to receive any comments at

This information is for indicative purposes only and not for reliance. The data is restricted to appeals which have been determined by public inquiry and excludes proposals of less than ten dwellings. Particular care needs to be taken over specific dwelling numbers and some appeal outcomes where there may have been a split decision or subsequent legal challenge. You are welcome to provide internet links to this data, with appropriate attribution (and including this text), but copying in any other form is not permitted. © Town Legal LLP.
