Appeal guidance and information

List of appeal types that are dealt with by The Planning Inspectorate.

Appeal Decisions during the General Election period

The Planning Inspectorate always aims to issue decisions promptly after the event.  However, in the run-up to General Election we are always concerned to ensure that appeal decisions concerning proposals which have raised particular sensitivities or interest in an area cannot be deemed to have influenced the election in any constituency or, more broadly, the country, or have been used to electoral advantage by any interested body.  Accordingly those decisions are not issued until the election results have been announced.

Each decision as to whether an appeal decision should be held back is taken on the circumstances of the case by senior managers in the Planning Inspectorate.

We shall of course ensure that any such decision delayed for the reasons above is issued promptly after the election result is announced.
