Appeal a planning decision


Householder appeals

Time in which you can make an appeal:

The appeal must be received by the Planning Inspectorate within 12 weeks from the date on the decision notice.

However, if an enforcement notice has been served for the same or very similar development the time limit is:

  • within 28 days from the date of the Authority’s decision if the enforcement notice was served before the decision was made yet not longer than two years before the application was made.
  • within 28 days from the date the enforcement notice was served if served on or after the date the decision was made (unless this extends the appeal period beyond 12 weeks).

Note – if the Authority has failed to determine your householder planning application or you are appealing against the grant of permission subject to conditions to which you object, please follow the time limits under “Appeals - Planning application”.
