This Guide applies:
This Guide applies to:
It also applies to all appeals which are “recovered” for the Secretary of State (rather than one of our Inspectors) to decide. If this applies to an appeal we will notify the parties.
It also applies to all planning applications which are “called-in” for the Secretary of State (rather than the local planning authority) to decide.
The criteria for determining the enforcement appeal procedure in this document applied until 2 October 2013.
Of particular note in both Procedural Guides is that the criteria for determining the appeal procedure have been revised and extended to apply to planning, enforcement, advertisement and discontinuance notice appeals from 3 October 2013.
The guides also confirm that for appeals received on or after 1 October 2013, and called-in planning applications where the date of the call-in letter is 1 October 2013 or later, costs may be awarded at the initiative of the Inspector.
These documents should be read alongside the guidance on appeals published by the Department for Communities and Local Government at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/planning-and-other-appeals-and-the-award-of-costs and any relevant circular. Parties should also consider any relevant emerging national planning practice guidance at http://planningguidance.planningportal.gov.uk.
