Appealing a planning decision
The planning process
If you have received a refusal then you have the right to appeal the decision within 6 months of the decision (or 12 weeks in the case of a Householder application). We can provide assessments on whether or not an appeal should be pursued, and once this is agreed there are three possible appeal options:
- Written Representations
- Informal Hearings
- Public Inquiries
however it is worth considering an appeal is not the best course of action in some cases to overcome a refused planning application, but rather negotiations with the Local Authority and a re-submission of the application will have a better result.
We will review the council’s reasons for refusal contained within the Decision Notice and Officer’s Report and advise on the best course of action.
