THE APPEAL PROCESS
- The Secretary of State appoints Inspectors from the Planning Inspectorate to consider planning appeals.
- Inspectors will either be authorised to decide appeals or, in more important cases, will report to the First Secretary of State who will then issue a decision.
- All inspectors are impartial and are professionally qualified in planning or a related profession such as law or architecture.
Appeals can be expensive and time consuming for both the Council and the applicant. Applicants are encouraged to discuss the Council's decision with planning officers before making an appeal, to see whether an amended application could overcome the Council's objections.
If you have a specific query please contact North Norfolk District Council’s Development Management Section.
