I WISH TO APPEAL - WHAT DO I DO NOW?
A quick checklist:-
I have read the decision notice and believe the Council are wrong. Or,
The Council have not issued a decision notice, 8 weeks have passed by and I have not agreed to extend the time for that decision. Or,
I object to a condition attached to my planning permission.
I have considered resubmitting for planning permission/variation of the condition, but do not think the Council will change their mind. Or,
I have tried to resolve the issue by negotiation with the Council but to no avail.
I believe I have a reasonable case and am not acting out of malice or just to be awkward.
You should appeal on APPEAL FORMS that may be obtained from the Inspectorate [contacts].
You must complete the forms and submit them within six months from the date of the refusal notice, (or after the due date for a decision if one is not forthcoming and there has been no extension of time), together with copies of the decision notice (if there is one) and any relevant information supporting your arguments.
The forms will ask you for a statement of your reasons for the appeal, known as Grounds of Appeal and these should be a concise appraisal of your case. There is no need to use any legal jargon.
