When you can appeal

Your local planning authority makes decisions about householder planning applications.

You can appeal a householder planning decision if you disagree with it.

Householder planning applications cover small projects like extensions and loft conversions. There’s a different process to appeal a full planning decision.

There’s no fee for appealing.

Only the person who made the application can appeal.

Deadline for appealing

If you disagree with a decision, you must appeal within 12 weeks of the date on the decision notice from your local planning authority.

The deadline’s earlier if you’ve received an enforcement notice. You must appeal within 28 days of the notice.

When you can expect a decision

You’ll get a decision once your appeal is validated.
