Changes to the appeals processes have been introduced from 1 October 2013. These affect the way certain appeals are to be handled, and in some cases the documentation and information we require from you when making an appeal.
Our online appeal forms have been updated to reflect the amendments to the appeal procedures referred to above, but should be used regardless of whether your appeal is affected by the changes. The messages within the online forms have also been amended to explain key amendments to the form, and how they affect you. You are asked to follow these closely.
You do NOT need to Register with the Planning Portal to use the online appeals service.
You will need to check that the type of appeal you want to make can be submitted online and that your computer meets our system requirements. You will also need to check that our system will be available when you want to use it.
Before using our online service to submit a new appeal, please check that you have the right to make the appeal.
Please review all the appeal guidance and in particular:
Please do not try to print out the online form - it has been designed to present you with the information we need, based on information you provide as you go along. So, for example, if you tell us that you are an Agent for the Appellant (by answering 'Yes' to that question) other questions about you as the Agent will be displayed. If you say 'No', these additional questions will not be displayed.
