Planning appeals

There are several types of planning appeals. All appeals are dealt with by the Planning inspectorate.

You can appeal against:

  • the refusal of a planning application
  • you can make an appeal against an enforcement notice
  • the refusal of a householder planning application.
  • the refusal of Listed Building or Conservation Area consent
  • refusal of Lawful Development Certificates
  • refusal of Advertisement Consent

If your application is refused, you should look at the reasons why. You may want to contact us for advice. If you amend your proposal and reapply within one year you may not have to pay another fee. Please contact us for advice on fee regulations.

  • All appeals should be made to the Planning Inspectorate.

Rights to appeal

You have the right to appeal if:

  • a decision on your planning application has not been made within the time allowed. This is normally a period of eight weeks (or 13 weeks for a major application) from when the application is accepted
  • we refuse your planning application or grant it but with conditions you disagree with.
  • we ask for more information before we can decide an outline planning application, but you do not want to supply this information

Who can appeal?

You must appeal within 28 days, eight weeks, twelve weeks or six months of a decision being issued, depending on the application type and must be done by the person who made the original application.

In cases where there is more than one applicant, for example Mr and Mrs either or both can appeal. However, only one appeal is allowed per planning application.
