Planning Appeals

If you apply for planning permission and the Local Planning Authority refuses the proposal, or places conditions on an approval, you have the right to appeal. There is no right of appeal for third parties, only the applicant can make an appeal.

Planning Appeals are dealt with by the Planning Inspectorate. For details on how to submit an appeal please refer to the Planning Inspectorate General Information on the process can be found in the document Procedural Guide to Planning Appeals .

The Planning Inspectorate has published 2 brief guides to planning inquiries and hearings:
