What is a decision notice

When a decision has been made and a planning application has been accepted, a decision notice will be issued to the applicant or their agent. 

All third parties who have written in respect of an application will also be informed of the outcome via letter or by e-mail, or by viewing a copy of the planning decision notice online.

If you are the applicant and you are not happy with our decision to refuse or the imposition of conditions you may choose to appeal the planning decision


Third party rights

Once a decision has been made you can no longer appeal against the decision taken by the council, unless you submitted the application yourself.

If you have good reason to believe that an application was dealt with improperly and have concerns over the process we followed to make our decision, you can complain to the Local Government Ombudsman.

In addition, the Ombudsman has no power to alter the decision, even if the Council's administration has not been entirely correct.
