Site inspections

People in hard hatsA site visit allows a reporter to view the site and understand the issues raised by the proposed development.

The reporter decides if a site inspection is to be accompanied or unaccompanied. If accompanied, the appellant and planning authority will be invited to attend. Others, including those who have made representations about the planning application or appeal and have opted-in to futher procedures, will be informed of the arrangements.

Notification of the date of the reporter's site inspection does not confer any rights to other parties to enter land that is privately owned. Very occasionally the owner of the land may object to parties entering the land.

The reporter will only discuss aspects of the site and cannot enter into discussions about the appeal or case.

If the reporter chooses an unaccompanied visit, he or she undertakes an inspection of the site alone.
