Planning Complaints

Appeals against an approved application cannot be made. But developers can appeal against their rejected ones.

The only method available to overturn an approval decision is by a very expensive Judicial Review which only looks at the process not the policies.

We have therefore recently started to use the council’s complaints procedure to lodge our concerns when applications are approved when blatantly disregarding planning policies.

Full details are in the monthly planning reports. Below is a high level summary.
