At the start of the appeal decision letter the Planning Inspector summarises the main issues that have led to the reason for refusal.  This reflects the refusal notice and any other issues raised through the statements produced by the appellant and the Council.  Quite often the Planning Inspector might not agree with all of the grounds of appeal and it might be the case that there is only one aspect of the proposal that results in the appeal being dismissed.  It is important to discuss the Inspector's reason for dismissing the appeal to see if the application can be amended to overcome the reasons why the appeal was dismissed.
