Appealing against enforcement notices

If you have been served with an enforcement notice, a listed building enforcement notice or a Section 215 notice you can appeal.

If you have been served with a planning enforcement notice or a listed building enforcement notice, you can appeal against the issue of the notice to the Planning Inspectorate within 28 days of being served with the notice. Guidance on the appeals procedure can be found on the Planning Portal website.

If you have been served with a Section 215 notice, you can appeal against the issue of the notice to the magistrates court. We recommend that you contact a legal adviser if you wish to pursue this option.

If you have been served with a breach of condition notice, a stop notice or a temporary stop notice, there is no right to appeal this notice other than applying to the High Court for judicial review if you consider the notice to be invalid.

If you choose not to appeal the notice, it will take effect on the timescales as stated on your notice and you are then required to comply with the requirements of the notice. Failure to comply with the requirements of the notice can be payable via prosecution proceedings in court (up to £20,000).
