Tips for appeals

The public can comment on planning appeals just like they can comment on planning applications, and there are tips you can follow to make sure that your comments are as relevant and effective as possible.

The decision to appeal: what you can do

If you have an interest in the outcome of an appeal, contact any groups who may be sympathetic to your point of view, such as local CPRE groups, the parish council, amenity societies, wildlife trusts, influential individuals and councillors.

Let them know about the decision to appeal, and gather as much new information as you can.

Spread the word further by contacting your MP, the media and neighbouring local authorities.

The more people you can get to support your view, the better.
