What if my planning application is refused? (Appeals)

Sub heading

Big house refurbishment 2

You can appeal against most applications or against conditions imposed on a permission

You have a right of appeal to the Planning Inspectorate if:

  • no decision has been reached on the application within the statutory eight week period
  • the application is refused
  • you do not agree with one or more of the conditions on an approval

Appeals are usually time consuming and, depending on which method of appeal you choose, can be expensive. Before you opt for this course of action, it is worth speaking to the planning officer who dealt with your application to see if there is scope to negotiate a compromise and submit an amended application.

If you choose to go ahead with your appeal you can do so using the link below.

I would like to appeal against the decision via the planning portal
