Appeals can be lodged against the refusal of a planning application, or against the issue of an enforcement notice.
If your application has been refused you have six months from refusal (eight weeks for the display of an advertisement; 28 days for works to a tree which is subject to a tree preservation order) in which to appeal to the secretary of state. You may also appeal against a planning condition you consider to be unreasonable.
