Planning permission application appeals

The applicant has the right to appeal against a decision to refuse planning permission.

If you formally objected to the original application, we will write to inform you if the applicant lodges an appeal.

Third party objectors have no right of appeal against a decision to grant planning permission. Such a decision can only be challenged on a point of law.

Appeals against the decision of a planning application are determined by the planning inspectorate.
