Appeals

If your planning application has been refused, you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate. Only the applicant or their agent can submit an appeal, there is no right of appeal for neighbours or consultees.

There are a number of situations where it is possible to submit an appeal:

  • appealing against a refused planning application: If your application has been refused and you don't agree with the reasons for refusal, you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.
  • you haven't received a decision within the statutory timeframe: If you haven't received a decision in writing, and haven't agreed to extend the decision period, you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate
  • appealing against a planning condition: If you disagree with a condition that has been placed on your decision notice, you can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.

Appeals are dealt with by the Planning Inspectorate, but the Local Planning Authority will notify individuals and other relevant bodies when an appeal is received. More information is available from the Planning Inspectorate website.
