An applicant has a right of appeal against refusal or deemed refusal to grant an environmental permit. There is also a right of appeal to the Secretary of State against permit conditions and refusal to grant a variation, transfer or surrender application. Such appeals must be made to the Planning Inspectorate within six months from the date of decision.
There is also a right of appeal against a regulator initiated variation, suspension, or enforcement notice, or where the regulator has deemed that the application has been withdrawn. Such appeals must be made to the Planning Inspectorate within two months of the date of the notice.
Appeals in relation to revocation notices must be made to the Planning Inspectorate before the date on which the revocation takes effect.
For further information on appeals please contact the Planning Inspectorate's Environmental Appeals Team
