Appeal a planning decision

3. Comment on an appeal

Anyone can comment on a planning appeal. Find the case on the appeals casework portal.

The deadline for comments is 5 weeks after the start date of the appeal, or 6 weeks after the date on the local planning authority’s enforcement notice.

Your local planning authority must tell anyone who has commented on the original application (‘interested parties’) that there’s an appeal.

They have to do this within a week of the appeal being validated by the Planning Inspectorate.
