If you are unsure whether your development is classed as a minor commercial development or a general commercial development, take a look at the definition here. If you are still unsure, please contact us and we will confirm the type of development. Minor Commercial appeals follow a quicker appeals process- you must submit an appeal for a Minor Commercial Development within 3 months of the date of the decision rather than the usual 6.

Please note: There are certain deadlines which applicants must meet in order for their submissions to be considered by the inspector. These are prescribed by law. We will advise you of deadlines relevant to your appeal at the outset. Timescales for the scheduling of hearings/inquiries and the final decision can be revised by the Planning inspectorate depending on the complexity of the issues involved and the route of appeal chosen. In addition, the process will generally take longer if a hearing or inquiry is required. As a guide, PINS expect the process to take 2-6 weeks longer on average using the hearing or inquiry route.
