When to Appeal and Can You Get Your Costs Back?
On the 3rd of October 2013 the Department for Communities and Local Government issued a 21 page Guidance document entitled “Planning and other appeals, and the award of costs”.
The October 2013 Guidance is divided into five parts:
- Is there a right of appeal on planning and related decisions, such as advertisement consent, listed building consent, and enforcement?
- What are the options for appeal if an application for planning permission is refused or is granted but with unacceptable conditions attached?
- Can other related decisions and consents such as advertisement consent, listed building consent and enforcement be appealed?
- Can an award of costs be sought if a party behaves unreasonably?
