Appeal a planning decision

If you disagree with a planning decision made on your planning application, you can appeal against our decision. You can’t make an appeal against a decision made on someone else’s planning application.

Find out about making an appeal against a planning decision at GOV.UK.

You can appeal if your application is:

  • not decided within a set period

  • refused by the local authority

  • granted on conditions you disagree with

Deadline for appealing

Most appeals relating to planning applications must be made to the Planning Inspectorate within 6 months from the date of the decision. The time period is shorter for householder and minor commercial appeals (12 weeks) and advertisement appeals (8 weeks).

Householder appeals

There's a different process to appeal a householder planning decision for a smaller project like an extension, conservatory or loft conversion. Find out about making an appeal against a householder planning decision at GOV.UK
