How do I appeal a planning decision?

Appeal a planning decision notice


You have a right of appeal against:

  • A refusal of planning permission
  • Consent to planning permission
  • Any conditions imposed where planning permission has been granted
  • The failure of the council to make a decision - usually 8 or 13 weeks after receipt of a valid application has been made

Please note: Only applicants can appeal. But if an appeal has been made - others have the right to comment as part of the appeal process.

Most planning application appeals must be made:

  • Within six months of the date of the decision
  • Within 12 weeks of the date of the decision for householder and minor commercial development appeals
  • Within  eight weeks for advertisement appeals
