You can appeal if your planning application is refused and you feel the decision is unfair. When your planning application is refused, the council will send you information on how to appeal. Usually, you will have it in writing, at an informal hearing, or via a public inquiry.
The most common type of planning appeal is an appeal against the refusal of planning permission.
Appeals can be lodged in other circumstances, for example:
- If an application is granted subject to conditions the Applicant considers unreasonable.,
- If the application is not decided within the time allowed.
- If there is a dispute between the Applicant and the planning authority regarding whether the Applicant has supplied sufficient information to determine a planning application.
An appeal can be made after the application has received its decision (or no decision in time). Appeals are usually made outside of Cloudpermit. However, the Municipal Planning Authority will change the application status to Appealed in Cloudpermit for the period of the appeal tribunal. After that, the application will have the Application Appeals section in which the appeal information, like the meeting date and decision, will be saved.
- Cloudpermit notifies all involved parties of the application via email that the application has been appealed.
- After logging in to Cloudpermit, navigate to the Application workspace.
- The application has a section called Application Appeals, which will save appeal tribunals, the date of appeal and appeal meeting, and finally, the date on which the decision has been made. When the Municipal Planning Authority sets the application to appeal in Cloudpermit, also the tribunal and the date of appeal will be recorded in the Application Appeals section. The meeting date will be updated once it has been decided. After the decision, the date of the decision will be available in the same section.
