Introduction

If your planning application is undetermined outside the determination period, refused or conditions are set that you disagree with, you have the right to appeal the decision of the council to the Planning Inspectorate.

The appeal process is available to applicants only. There is no right of appeal for interested people or organisations.

Planning appeals are administered and undertaken by the Planning Inspectorate, which is independent of the council.

How to appeal

The planning decision notice provides details of how to appeal. You can find more information on planning and development on the gov.uk website.
