Introduction

Planning appeals are the most common type of appeal, and depending on the type of application that is to be considered there are different ways of proceeding with the appeal.

The most common appeal is in respect of a refusal of planning permission, although you can also appeal against any conditions that have been imposed on a planning permission or if the local planning authority has failed to make a decision within a specified timeframe (usually 8 or 13 weeks depending upon the type of application).

However, it is possible to appeal against other planning decisions, including those listed below, but they may involve different grounds for appeal and deadlines.

A planning consultant may help with the smooth running of your project and guide you on any appeal processes that may arise. To find an accurate consultancy quote, explore Studio Charrette's calculators.
