If an application is refused the applicant has a right of appeal
through the Planning Inspectorate.
However we would recommend that you contact us prior to
lodging your appeal. Some issues can be resolved through minor
alterations to proposals provided that:
The proposal is submitted by the same applicant;
Is for a similar proposal;
Is within the same application boundary,
And is within a year of the decision.
You may not attract a further fee subject to any fee changes
that central government may bring in.
When can you appeal?
You can appeal in the following circumstances:
If you are refused permission;
If you consider the conditions imposed on a
permission to be unreasonable;
If we have failed to approve details of a scheme which
has already received outline planning permission;
If we have failed to determine your application within the
time allowed for the type of application (normally 8 weeks
but 13 weeks for major applications);
If we have asked for additional information that we consider
necessary to determine an outline application but that you
consider to be unnecessary;
If we refuse to accept a proposal for discharging conditions
on a development.
How long do you have to appeal?
Appeal details (including all associated appeal documentation)
must be received by the Planning Inspectorate within six months
of the date of decision issued from the authority, but for
household extensions and for shop fronts this period is reduced
to 12 weeks from date of decision,. For advertisement
applications the appeal must be submitted within 8 weeks of the
date of decision.
The Appeal Process
The appeal process depends on the nature of the appeal and as
to whether it is a householder appeal, written representations,
informal hearing or inquiry.
All types of appeal have strict timescales set as to which party
needs to provide information and by when. This is so that
Inspectors have all relevant information and can issue
decisions quicker.
For further information please refer to the Planning Inspectorate
website via
Submitting the Appeal
The appeal can only be submitted by or on behalf of the original
applicant. There are no third party rights to lodge an appeal and
therefore objectors have no right to appeal against planning
permission granted under the planning system in England.
