Planning appeals

You can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate if you disagree with a planning decision on your application. You cannot appeal against someone else’s planning application.

You can appeal against:

  • your application being refused
  • a planning condition you don’t agree with
  • an application which was not decided within the agreed timescale
  • an enforcement notice

How to appeal

For householder applications you have 12 weeks from the date of our decision to appeal.

For other applications you have six months from the date of our decision to appeal.

Appeal a decision

If you are unable to appeal online then contact the Planning Inspectorate directly.

Phone: 0303 444 5000


Please make sure you also send us a copy of your appeal.
