Informing you of Decisions and Appeals


Summary (optional)
start content

Once a decision has been made on an application we send out the Decision Notice to the applicant or agent. The Notice will set out the reasons for approval or refusal of the application and, if permission has been granted, any conditions with which you have to comply.

There are no rights of appeal for third parties (objectors) who are unhappy with the planning decision. We will however explain the reason for the decision and how your comments were taken into account if you contact us.

If you feel that your application has been unreasonably refused there are two courses of action open to you:

Amend and re-submit your application within 12 months of the decision without paying a further fee (you can only have one further attempt for no additional fee), or, Appeal to the Planning Inspectorate following the guidance detailed in the decision notice.
