Planning appeals: procedural guide - minor update

The Planning appeals: procedural guide has been updated in relation to time limits to make an appeal.

There are different time limits to make an appeal depending on the type of appeal and the circumstances. Paragraph 2.4.3 of the procedural guide now states that if an enforcement notice has been served for the same or very similar development for the type of appeals referred to in paragraph 2.4.2 then the time limit to make an appeal is:

  • within 28 days from the date of the local planning authority’s decision notice or of the date by which the local planning authority should have decided the application if the enforcement notice was served before the decision was made yet not longer than 2 years before the application was made.
  • within 28 days from the date the enforcement notice was served if served on or after the end of the period the local planning authority had to determine the application(unless this extends the normal appeal period).
