The time limits in which you need to submit your appeal to the Planning Inspectorate are as follows:
- Householder applications - the time limit to appeal is 12 weeks from the date of the notice of the decision or determination giving rise to an appeal.
- In other cases, appeals should be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate within six months of the date of the decision notice giving rise to the appeal.
- Where we have failed to make a decision, an appeal against non-determination can be submitted up to six months after the expiry of the period we had for dealing with the application.
Where an Enforcement notice has been served on the same, or substantially the same, development the time limits to appeal are:
- 28 days from the date of the refusal or the expiry of the period which we had to determine the application, where the enforcement notice is served before the application is submitted;
- 28 days from the date of the refusal or the expiry of the period which we had to determine the application, where the enforcement notice is served before the decision on the application is reached or the determination period has expired; or
- 28 days from the date the enforcement notice is served, where the enforcement notice is served after the decision or expiry of the period which we had to reach a decision on the application, unless the effect would be to extend the period beyond the usual time limit for cases not involving an enforcement notice, as outlined above.
