Planning applications - appeals against decisions

How to appeal

On the reverse of your planning decision notice are details of how to appeal. You can appeal against refusal or conditions imposed on the permission.

We advise applicants or their agents to ask for a meeting with the planning case officer to discuss the grounds for refusal of planning permission.

They may wish to follow this up by making a pre-application enquiry with a view to submitting a new application. In certain instances resubmitting an application will not require an additional planning fee.

For guidance and to make an appeal, please visit GOV.UK - planning permissions and appeals.

Professional help

The council's Development Management Service is here to advise you, but if your project is complex or controversial, or requires particular expertise, you may want a professional to act for you. We cannot recommend any particular professional agent but you could try the following organisations:

The list is not exhaustive and other professionals may be able to help you.


If you have an agent, all correspondence and enquiries should go through them. This includes the decision notice.

We will assume your agent has advised you about the risks that may arise if you do not follow our advice. Your agent should also be able to advise you about the foreseeable issues associated with your proposal. If you have any problems with your application, including an invalid entry on the register, please contact your agent.
