Only an applicant and also those who have received an enforcement notice can appeal. There is no third party right of appeal, eg:, for neighbours affected by a grant of planning permission.

If you disagree with the decision on your application, or are unhappy with a condition attached to your decision notice, or your application has not been decided within the target date of 8 weeks, you have the right to appeal.

Appeals are made to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and are administered by the Planning Inspectorate
