Planning appeals

3. How do I comment on a planning appeal?

Once an appeal has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate there will be a delay until the Planning Inspectorate issues a 'Start Date'.  At that point the appeal process starts and we will advise anyone who made representations on the planning application that an appeal has been made.

All comments received during the planning application will be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate. Any further comments you wish to make should be made using the Appeals Casework Portal. Please note, for most Householder appeals there is no opportunity to make further comments to those submitted at the time of the application. 

The 'Start' button will take you to the Appeals Casework Portal where you can comment online. 

Comments must be made within the timescale set out by the Planning Inspectorate and will not be acknowledged but will be forwarded to the Appellant and the council and will be published on our website for general viewing. You will need the Planning Inspectorate reference number to submit your comments. You can find this on their website using the address or application reference number.

If you would rather comment by post you must send your letter to The Planning Inspectorate, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN.

You can view appeal documents here using our appeal reference planning and appeal files online
