This Practice Note contains guidance to the provisions contained within CPR PD 52B, which deals with appeals in the County Court and High Court, and supplements CPR 52 and the other practice directions under Part 52. General provisions on appeals are contained within CPR PD 52A. As such, this Practice Note should be read in conjunction with other Practice Notes giving general guidance on appeals being conducted under CPR 52 and its accompanying Practice Directions in: Civil appeals: general and preliminary considerations—overview.

This Practice Note has been updated with the changes to Part 52 which were brought into effect in October 2016, to which transitional provisions apply. Part 52 of the CPR is subject to transitional provisions. These reflect the changes made to this part over time, and require the court and the parties to comply with the rules applicable at the relevant time. Practitioners will need to be aware of the transitional provisions and consider the extent to which they apply to their matter. For detailed guidance on the pre-October 2016 provisions, the applicable transitional provisions and for a roadmap to historic content, see Practice Notes: Changes to Part 52 in October 2016 and transitional provisions [Archived]—Transitional Provisions and Amendments to Part 52 on 3 October 2016—table of destinations.
