The applicant has a right of appeal against any refusal of planning permission, approval or consent to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. There is also a right of appeal against any condition which the Council may impose.
Appeals can be dealt with in three ways – by an exchange of written representation, by means of an informal hearing or by public inquiry. For householder developments only, a new "fast track" system has also been introduced.
Anyone who made comments about a planning application is notified of any appeal and has the opportunity to make comments (except for householder fast track appeals). You can check whether an appeal has been received in relation to any application through the Public Access
part of this site. Any appeal decision is shown on the "Application Details" tab; the date of receipt of any appeal and any decision date are included on the "Important Dates" tab.
The Planning Portal
contains a great deal of guidance about appeals and allows an appeal to be made on-line.
There is a right of appeal against most types of Planning Enforcement Notices served by the Council. Information about enforcement appeals can be found on the Planning Portal. The site allows you to download the appeal forms, check progress on the appeal and view all documents.
