Applicants can appeal to the Planning Inspectorate if they feel they have reason to disagree with the Council’s decision concerning their planning application.

In 2014/15 there were 21 appeals submitted against refusal of planning permission. The Planning Inspector agreed with the Council either wholly or in part in only 38 per cent (eight) of cases.

Our target, set by our Business Plan, is 75 per cent of appeals to be won. Our performance on appeals has declined from the previous year.
