    Planning Appeal information

    There are many different types of planning appeal; this page will give a brief insight into the main types, but please contact us for specific assistance. The FAQ's page also provides some further answers to popular questions. Our Case Studies page provides some examples. The main planning appeal types are:

    Appeal against planning refusal


    The most common form of planning appeal is against a local planning authority (LPA) refusing planning permission. This planning refusal can be for numerous reasons, but the Council must state these reasons and give planning policy justification accordingly. Along with several other elements, these refusal reasons are critical and the starting point to developing the grounds of appeal required to be submitted alongside the relevant forms. At planningappeal.com we have a wide ranging experience in submitting planning appeals and grounds of appeal statements.

    Householder Appeals

    The householder appeal service is a specific planning appeal for for works to private homes. There is no third party right to comment on the appeal (i.e. Neighbours). Householder appeals are required to be made within 12 weeks of planning permission refusal. 80% of householder appeals are targeted to be determined within 8 weeks


    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with minor Householder appeals.

    Appeal against planning approval subject to conditions

    Ensuring that every planning approval has appropriate and reasonable planning conditions is essential. If your application has been approved with condition (s), you have the right to appeal to the relevant Planning Inspectorate who will then review and amend accordingly. This is not necessarily the best way to amend or remove planning conditions.

    Appeal against non determination

    If your planning application has not been determined within the statutory time periods (8/ 13 weeks), you have a right to appeal to the relevant Planning Inspectorate requesting that they decide the application.

    Enforcement appeals (including planning enforcement notice, listed building enforcement and discontinuance notice)

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Enforcement appeals.

    Listed Building/Conservation Area appeals

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Listed Building appeals.

    Advertisement appeals

    Unfortunately at the present time, due to our case load, we are currently unable to assist with Advertisement appeals.

    Lawful Development Certificate appeals

    We are able to undertake Certificate of Lawful Development Certificate appeals to determine whether proposed works are Permitted Development or that existing works were lawfully carried out. Please contact us more information.
