Appeal a planning decision

You can challenge the Authority’s planning decisions by making an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate. Appeals can be lodged against the following:

  • Refusal of planning permission
  • Condition/s imposed on a grant of planning permission
  • Non-determination of an application within the required time limit
  • Taking formal enforcement action.

The Authority will send out details of how to appeal with all decision notices and enforcement notices. Appeal forms are available from the Planning Inspectorate. The Authority will notify anyone who has made a representation on an application of any subsequent appeal.

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact the Planning Admin Team on 01590 646615 (8.45am – 1pm Monday – Friday) or email:
