When To Make A Planning Appeal?

When can you make a planning appeal?

When a Local Planning Authority (LPA) makes a decision on your planning application, you can appeal with no fees in some cases: 

• Your application was refused for reasons you think are against the LPA’s planning policy.

• Your application was approved with conditions you think are unnecessary or unreasonable.

• Your application wasn’t given a decision on and 8 weeks have passed since the agreed-upon date.

How long do you have to make an appeal?

You have 6 months to appeal from the date you received – or were supposed to receive – your decision notice. However, in cases of enforcement, you’ll have less than that depending on when you’ve received the enforcement notice;

• Before your application was refused; you have 28 days from the decision letter date.

• After your application was refused; you have either 28 days from the enforcement letter date or 6 months from the decision letter date.

What's after that?

After that, the Planning Inspectorate will check your appeal, make sure it’s valid, take it into consideration, and you’ll be given a date to expect to receive the decision.

The appeal argues that the property hasn’t been divided to flats, as the enforcement notice states, but remains an HMO. Ground floor plan shows the communal kitchen and the site survey did as well.
