Making an Appeal
If you are the applicant and disagree with the decision of the Council on a planning application, the condition(s) attached to a decision, or that the Council have not made a decision within the prescribed time (8 weeks, or 13 weeks in the case of a major application) you can lodge an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate. An appeal has to be lodged with the Planning Inspectorate within 6 months of the decision date, except for Householder Appeals which need to be lodged within 12 weeks of the decision date.
The period for lodging an appeal against failure of an Local Planning Authority to determine an application including applications for non-material changes to planning permissions begins after the expiry of 28 days.
Appeals submitted outside the prescribed limits will normally be turned away by the Inspectorate.
