There is no right of appeal for anyone else.
In most circumstances you should be able to make the appeal yourself, but someone else can do it for you, acting on your behalf.
Yes, there is a time limit (except for appeals relating to certificate of lawful use or development applications). Whilst an appeal should be a last resort, you should take the time limit into account when exploring other options with the local planning authority.
The time limit for making your appeal depends on the type of appeal you are making.
The matter will usually be considered and decided by an Inspector acting for the Secretary of State (England). In a limited number of cases, the Inspector will write a report and the decision will be taken by the Secretary of State.
You will be expected to provide information to support your case. The local planning authority will provide information to support theirs. You will be told what the timetable is for this information to be provided.
Before reaching a decision, the Inspector will usually visit the site, and may hold a hearing or inquiry as well, depending on the procedure adopted for the appeal. Further information about procedures can be found in the relevant “How to complete your appeal form”.
The time from submitting an appeal to getting a decision may run into months. Details of current handling times can be found on the Handling Times page.
It does not cost anything to make an appeal. If you decide that you want someone to represent you, you may have to pay them for doing so.
If your appeal relates to an Enforcement Notice, you may need to pay a fee to the local planning authority if you want the Inspector to consider a “deemed planning application”. Information about the amount payable will be enclosed with the enforcement notice.
