Decision notices are the formal notification of our decision on an application. A decision notice outlines to the applicant whether an application has been granted or refused.
What if I do not agree with the decision?
All applicants have a right of appeal to the Government’s Planning Inspectorate against either a refusal or the imposition of conditions. Notes on how to appeal any decision are included on the decision notice.
In the case of permissions that have been granted, the decision notice will detail any conditions, which have been imposed.
In the case where permission has been refused, the Decision Notice will set out the reasons for refusal.
Often other approvals are needed before work can start, e.g. Building Regulations. If these approvals introduce significant changes to a scheme a new planning permission may be needed.
