Appeal against a planning decision
If we turn your planning application down, try to adjust your plans so that we can come to an agreement.
If we can’t reach an agreement, you can appeal – as long as you do it within a certain time.
You can appeal against a decision if we:
refuse your application
give you permission, but add conditions you object to
don’t approve something reserved under an ‘outline permission’ (planning permission for a general idea, not a specific plan)
refuse to approve something we told you to build as part of a previous planning application
don’t make a decision within the deadline
serve an enforcement notice (because we think you have done something without permission) and you don’t agree.
