There are a number of grounds on which you can make a planning appeal.

Grounds to make an appeal

You can make a planning appeal:

  • If we have refused your planning application.
  • If you disagree with the condition(s) attached to your planning application decision.
  • If we have not made a decision on your application within the set time period (eight weeks, or in the case of a major application thirteen weeks).
  • If we have decided to issue an enforcement notice.

How to appeal

To appeal against our refusal of planning permission for your application, your appeal must be lodged with The Planning Inspectorate within six months of the decision date.

Appeals for householder applications must be lodged within twelve weeks of the decision date.

Enforcement appeals need to be lodged before the effective date of the Enforcement Notice.

Where the appeal is against us not determining your application on time (including applications for non-material changes to planning permission), you have 28 days after the expiry of the determination date to lodge your appeal.

Information explaining your rights and how to make an appeal are attached to your decision notice. Alternatively you can contact us or use the online appeals service.
