Make a planning appeal

If an application is refused, or approved, subject to conditions, and is thought to be unfair or unreasonable, the applicant can make an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.

Details of how to appeal are on the back of the Decision Notice or on the website.

There is no third party right to appeal (eg an objector who is unhappy with a decision to approve).

Please note appeals must be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate within specific timeframes.

If comments were made on an application before it was decided, you can make further comments directly to the Planning Inspectorate.
