How to appeal

Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), you cannot currently appeal by post. You can still appeal to the Planning Inspectorate online.

If you want to appeal more than one decision you must make a separate appeal for each.

You need to send a copy of your appeal, including all the supporting documents, to your local planning authority. The Planning Inspectorate will tell you how to do this.

Documents you must provide

You’ll 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’ll also need to submit:

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

You can upload these documents when you appeal.
