Commenting on an appeal

Anyone can comment on a planning appeal. You will first need to find the case on the Planning Inspectorate appeals casework portal.

You will not need to repeat any comments that you have made previously. We will send all comments that have been submitted during the course of the planning application to the Planning Inspectorate when an appeal is made.

In the event of an appeal against refusal of a planning permission for householder applications, which is to be dealt with on the basis of representations in writing, any representations made about this application will be sent to the Secretary of State, and there will be no further opportunity to comment at appeal stage.

 


Additional information - appeal guidance

The Planning Inspectorate have published a guide that will provide you with assistance on making a comment.
