Appeal a planning decision

Use this service to appeal a planning decision.

You can use this service to appeal a planning decision from your local planning authority if the decision notice was issued within the last 6 months.

As part of a major transformation project, the Planning Inspectorate is improving the digital services that we offer. We are currently accepting a small number of appeals via our new submission portal. You’ll be asked some pre-qualifying questions to determine if you can use the new portal for your appeal. If not, you’ll be directed back to our original Appeals Casework Portal. We apologise for any inconvenience while we improve the service.
