Closed petition Extend right of appeal for major planning developments to objectors
For the Government to change the National Planning Policy Framework and Planning law so that in the case of major developments those objecting have a right of appeal.
If a planning proposal is refused, those submitting plans have three options of appeal, Written, Hearing or an Inquiry, whereas those opposing have no right of appeal. Major developments can affect thousands of people who may object for valid reasons but do not currently have a right of appeal. Providing a right of appeal would be fairer to the public and provide a safeguard where a major development should be reconsidered.
