Appeals

You have 6 months from the date of our decision to appeal against a refusal of permission or against conditions imposed on your permission.

You can write to the Planning Inspectorate with your comments on an appeal unless the appeal relates to a householder application or minor commercial application which has been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate under the fast-track appeal procedure. In this case, we'll send any comments we received during the consultation period to the Secretary of State and you'll have no further opportunity to comment.

If the appeal is allowed, our decision could be overturned and conditions could be replaced or removed. However, if the appeal is dismissed, our decision remains the same but the applicant is still free to re-apply for permission with an amended proposal.

  • The Planning Inspectorate - deals with the processing of planning and enforcement appeals and the holding of inquiries into local development plans and frameworks.
