Planning Appeals

You can appeal if you disagree with the decision, within 6 months of the date on the decision notice from your local planning authority.

To appeal, you will need to send a copy of your appeal, including all the supporting documents, to your local planning authority


You will need to submit copies of your original application, the site ownership certificate, the local planning authority’s decision notice – if they did not make a decision, submit a copy of the letter acknowledging your application, all plans, drawings, and documents you sent to the local planning authority.


You will also need to submit:


  • a map of the surrounding area
  • any other documents that directly support your appeal, for example, your full statement of the case.

We can help guide and submit an appeal on behalf of our clients. The appellant’s chance of success at appeal is roughly thirty per cent. We are fully conversant with the appeal process and have undertaken appeals by inquiry, hearing, and written representation.
