Planning appeals

A brief guide to planning appeals. If you require more detailed guidance you should consider taking independent advice from a surveyor or town and country planner.

Preliminaries for an appeal

A right to make an appeal on a planning application arises in one of three ways.

  • when an application for planning permission is refused by the county council as the local planning authority, or
  • when no decision has been made on such an application within 8 weeks after it has been registered by the county council (and the applicant has not agreed to an extension of time for a decision to be made) or
  • when an applicant is unhappy regarding a condition(s) which has been imposed on a certificate of decision.


The appeal process is separate from the issue of maladministration. If the council has failed to handle the process correctly then a complaint can be made. The council has a complaints procedure. Complaints can also be made to the ombudsman who will investigate whether the correct procedures have been followed.

The ombudsman can be contacted at:
