If, over the Christmas and New Year period (23 December 2019 – 3 January 2020), you are party to an appeal or other casework, please make every effort where possible to meet the deadlines for sending documentation to us. If the information is due to be submitted on a Bank Holiday, then please send it to us earlier.
If you are unable to do this, then please contact your designated case officer who will discuss the matter with you. Please note that, if a later submission date is required, it will not be possible to extend any deadline later than 10 January 2020 for all Planning, Householder and Commercial Appeals. This only applies to appeals in England.
This will help us progress the appeal or other casework as quickly as possible.
Please be aware that if you are appealing against an enforcement notice then you must ensure that the appeal is submitted prior to the effective date of that notice. We are unable to accept late appeals.
At busy times we may not be able to answer your call or respond to a message immediately. We appreciate your patience at all times and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
