What is the Planning Portal's complaint procedure?
The policy aims to ensure that:
- Anyone with a complaint is listened to and treated with courtesy, empathy and fairness
- Those with complaints are kept informed of the progress and outcome of investigations into their complaint
- Action to rectify the cause of the complaint is identified, implemented and evaluated, and
- That we learn from complaints so that we can continually improve our service.
Contacting the Planning Portal: Customer Complaints
Thank you for using the Planning Portal, your feedback is appreciated to help us to understand and improve the services we provide through the Planning Portal. PPQ is committed to providing customers with the best possible service but we recognise that sometimes things go wrong.

We aim to acknowledge your complaint within two working days and send a formal response within 10 working days. If for any reason we’re unable to respond to your complaint in the given timelines, we’ll keep you informed as to the reasons why and we’ll give you an updated timeline for response.
