Applicants who have received a refusal of planning permission, or who are not happy with the imposition of a condition on a planning permission may appeal to the Planning Inspectorate. Also, where the Council has failed to determine an application within eight weeks the applicant may also make such an appeal.
If you have submitted an application you have the right of appeal to the planning inspectorate if:
- a decision regarding your planning application has NOT been reached within the statutory period for a decision (usually either 8 or 13 weeks from the date the application has been registered)
- the application has been refused
- you do not agree with any of the conditions attached to an approval of planning permission
Visit the gov.uk/appeal-planning-decision webpage for more information.
The above does not apply if an enforcement notice has been served, in which case you can only appeal within 28 days of a planning permission (if an enforcement notice was served prior to any application or its determination) or 28 days of the service of an enforcement notice where an application was determined for the development which is the subject of the notice before the notice was served.
You can find more information on enforcement appeals on the gov.uk/appeal-enforcement-notice webpage.
