How to appeal if you have been refused planning permission, and details of previous and current and previous appeals against planning decisions.
If you are the applicant, there is a right of appeal against most planning decisions taken by the City Council. You can appeal against any refusal of permission and it is also possible to lodge an appeal if the Council has granted permission but you disagree with any of the conditions that the Council has imposed. Full information on how to appeal is issued along with the decision notice in every case where a right of appeal applies.
You can find comprehensive advice on planning appeals on the Planning Portal website, including details of how to appeal on line.
The Planning Inspectorate is the national organisation responsible for processing planning appeals. For any enquiries about appeals you can contact them direct:
By phone: (0117) 372 6372
