Planning appeal process

Who can appeal

Only the person who made the planning application has the right to appeal. The Planning Inspectorate must receive all relevant appeal papers within six months of the local planning authorities’ decision notice or within six months of the end of the decision period if the local planning authority has not made a decision.

Where there is an enforcement notice on the site for the same or similar development, the appeal period may be reduced to 28 days.

For a householder refusal you only have twelve weeks from the date of the decision notice being issued to appeal.

For advertisement refusals you only have eight weeks from the date of the decision notice being issued to appeal.

For minor commercial (shop front development) refusals you only have twelve weeks from the date of the decision notice being issued to appeal.
