Appealing a planning decision


Can I appeal a planning decision I have commented on?

No, only the applicant has the right to appeal.

What happens if the applicant appeals?

The applicant may appeal a refusal of planning permission or a condition placed on the permission. Usually the applicant has 6 months to appeal, however this is reduced to 12 weeks for applications related to householder development.

If an appeal is made, the Council will write to everyone who originally commented on the application. For most types of planning application they will be invited to comment directly to the Appeal Inspector. However if the application was for a householder development, copies of your original representations will be passed on and there will be no further opportunity to comment.
