Planning appeal process

Commenting on an appeal

View pages in this section

We will send the Planning Inspectorate copies of any letters of support or objection we received about the planning application while considering it. These will be fully considered by the Inspector who decides the appeal. If you did not write at the application stage, or you did write and now have something new to say, you can send your comments online through the Planning Portal using the Planning casework service (planning portal.gov.uk).

Alternatively, you can write or email the Planning Inspectorate. The local planning authority will have told you the case officer’s contact details. If you send your comments in a letter, if possible, please send the Planning Inspectorate three copies. You must make sure that they receive your comments within five weeks of the starting date for the appeal. The local authority should have told you the deadline. The Planning Inspectorate will send copies of your comments to the appellant, this council and the inspector. If you send your comments after the end of the time limit, the planning inspector will not normally accept them. Instead they will return them to you. This means that the inspector will not take them into account.

Please note - for householder and advertisement appeals you do not have the opportunity to make further comments.
