Can you object after planning permission has been granted?

An appeal against a granted planning application may only be made by the applicant. This implies that you cannot appeal a judgment on a planning application that you did not file yourself. If another person filed the application on your behalf, they can appeal the decision.

If an appeal is made to the local planning authority by way of petition or otherwise, then the planning application will be re-assessed as if it had been filed by the appellant personally. He/she will therefore need to comply with all the requirements for filing an application.

You should note that if an application is appealed and subsequently rejected, then this will form part of the applicant's record and could therefore affect any future applications that person files.

The applicant does not have to participate in the appeal process. If they do not defend their case, then the planning inspector will determine that there is no reason to reverse the original decision.

In conclusion, yes you can object after planning permission has been granted.

What happens if you object to a planning application?

Can you challenge a planning decision?

There are no third-party rights of appeal against a local planning authority decision through the planning system.

How successful are planning appeals?

According to the Planning Inspectorate, around 20% of all failed planning applications will be appealed. 6384 small home planning application appeals (1–9 residential units) were submitted, with a 21.25 percent success rate; and 4864 Householder Appeals (house expansions) were submitted, with a 36.25 percent success rate. This represents a decrease in appeal success rates since 2005.

The average cost of an appeal to the English Planning System is 2,500.00 pounds ($3,750.00).

The main reasons for appeal failure include lack of necessity, insufficient information, objections by other applicants or the council, and incorrect decision-making at committee stage. If your appeal is rejected it can be resubmitted within 12 months.

Appeals can be complicated and expensive. If you do decide to appeal a decision made by a local authority then your best chance of success is to choose an experienced firm of town planners or landscape architects to represent you during the hearing before the Appeal Board. The more evidence you can produce that supports your case the better your chances are of success.

Planning appeals are different from legal actions where you fight someone in court. In a planning appeal, you are not fighting anyone, instead you are arguing why a decision made by a local authority should be changed.

Legal actions are fought between two parties in the presence of a judge.
