Appeal a planning application decision

You may appeal to the Secretary of State, where:

  • planning permission has been refused
  • an application was granted with conditions considered inappropriate
  • an application was not determined within the appropriate time

You can also appeal against an enforcement notice served due to an alleged breach of planning control.

To submit your appeal online, please go to the Planning Inspectorate, or you can contact the Planning Inspectorate to request the appropriate forms.

You can use planning online to view details of appeals made and associated documents. You will need the reference number of the planning application. You can also do so via Planning Inspectorate, using the Planning Inspectorate's appeal reference number.
