You can make an appeal against a planning permission decision to the Planning Inspectorate. They deal with the processing of planning and enforcement appeals and hold inquiries into local development plans and frameworks.
How to appeal a planning permission decision
You have 6 months from the date of our decision on a planning application to appeal against a refusal or against conditions imposed on your permission.
- Read the Planning Inspectorate's guidance on planning permissions and appeals.
- Make an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.
- If the appeal is allowed, our decision could be overturned and conditions could be replaced or removed.
- If the appeal is dismissed, our decision remains the same but you're able to re-apply for permission with an amended proposal.
If 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, we'll send any comments we received during the consultation period to the Secretary of State. You'll have no further opportunity to comment.
