How to appeal
An appeal can only be submitted by or on behalf of the original applicant. The timescales for appealing a refusal can be found on your Refusal of Planning Permission or on your Enforcement Notice.
When you submit an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate you must also send a copy to us, along with copies of any documentation.
Commenting on appeals
No-one can comment on a householder planning appeal. We will forward any comments submitted at application stage to the Planning Inspectorate.
Anyone can comment on a planning appeal (not including Householder appeals).
The deadline for comments is:
- 5 weeks after the start date of the appeal, or
- 6 weeks after the date on the enforcement notice
We must tell anyone who has commented on the original application (‘interested parties’) that there’s an appeal. We must do this within a week of the appeal being validated by the Planning Inspectorate.
