How to Appeal
Most appeals relating to planning applications must be made to the Planning Inspectorate within 6 months of the date of the decision. For householder applications made after 6 April 2009, the period for submitting an appeal has been reduced from 6 months to 12 weeks. In the case of advertisement applications, appeals must be made within 8 weeks.
Appeals can be considered by the written procedure or can be heard by an Inspector at an Informal Hearing or a Public Inquiry. Most cases are considered by the written procedure. The appellant and the local authority can request that their case be dealt with at a Hearing or a Public Inquiry but the Planning Inspectorate will decide which procedure is to be used. There is no third party right of appeal against the grant or refusal of permission.
