If we reject your planning application, or grant permission, but with conditions you object to, you can appeal against the decision.
You can comment on a planning application even if this is still undecided.
How to appeal a planning decision
Planning appeals are handled by the Planning Inspectorate. You can access the system online through GOV.UK.
Appeal or search a planning decision or notice
You can find any case on the system using one or more of the following available search fields:
- case reference
- date submitted
- local planning authority
How long do I have to make an appeal?
Most appeals must be made within 6 months of the decision date. This time period is shortened to 12 weeks for householder and minor commercial development appeals and 8 weeks for advertisement appeals.
For full details of the appeal timescales can be found on the GOV.UK website.
A list of the appeals for Preston City Council planning applications can be found on the appeal search facility.
