There is a right of appeal to the Secretary of State against the council's refusal of planning permission or related consent or against any conditions imposed where permission is granted.
There is also a right of appeal against the council’s failure to make a decision on an application within the prescribed time period (usually 8 or 13 weeks after receipt of a valid application).
Most appeals relating to planning applications must be made to the Planning Inspectorate within 6 months of the date of the decision. The time period is shorter for householder and minor commercial development appeals (12 weeks) and advertisement appeals (8 weeks).
For advice on making an appeal, please see GOV.UK.
