Appeal a planning enforcement notice

If you've built or changed something without planning permission we may send you an enforcement notice which requires the use of the land to stop and/or any buildings or structures to be removed.

You can appeal against an enforcement notice on the Planning Inspectorate's Appeals Casework Portal. You must own, rent or lawfully occupy the property or land it applies to.

Appeal a planning enforcement notice

There's no fee for appealing, unless you also apply for planning permission and anyone can comment on your appeal.

Your appeal must be received before the date the enforcement notice takes effect. Once your appeal has been validated, you'll get a decision within 36 weeks.
