Appeals against other planning decisions

Coronavirus (COVID-19): This Practice Note contains guidance on subjects potentially impacted by the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak — see: Planning appeals—key points — Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on planning appeals. For further updates on key developments and related practical guidance on the implications for lawyers, see: Coronavirus (COVID-19)—Planning and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) toolkit.

Appeals can be made in respect of most types of planning decisions, as well as against an application for planning permission.
