If your application is refused, the decision notice will set out the reasons for the refusal. Where the refusal relates primarily to issues of detail or design, you may prefer to negotiate with the Authority and re-submit the proposal. However, this is not usually an option where the refusal relates to a fundamental policy objection.
You have a right to appeal against a refusal or a condition that is attached to your permission to an independent Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. This must be done within six months of the date of refusal for a non-householder application and within 12 weeks for a householder application.
The procedure for this is set out on the back of the decision notice. Please use the Planning Explorer website to search for details of planning appeals lodged against the Authority's decisions.
If you would like to receive an electronic copy of the details of any appeal listed please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Details of an appeal decision will be placed on the Planning Explorer website under the relevant application reference number.
