GROUP 2 OF 4 - New Legislation - 4 new Statutory Instruments (SIs):

  • [Note: To view this list of 4 SIs, please log onto the website as a member].

SHORT SUMMARY:

  • For written representations appeals, the expedited procedure (which currently only applies to "householder appeals") will be expanded to also apply to "advertisement consent appeals" and "minor commercial appeals".  It should be noted that the definition of a "minor commercial appeal" is relatively narrow, and would typically only apply to an application to alter the shopfront of an A1, A2, A3, A4, or A5 property.
  • For written representations appeals, the standard procedure will be subject to new shorter timescales, including that the appellant will have to submit their statement of case when they initially submit their appeal.  However, it should be noted that certain types of appeals (e.g. an appeal against a discontinuance notice, an appeal that the Secretary of State transfers from the expedited procedure to the standard procedure, etc) will remain subject to the old longer timescales.
  • For hearings and inquiries determined by Inspectors, there will be new shorter timescales, including that the appellant will have to submit their statement of case and a draft statement of common ground when they initially submit their appeal.
  • For inquiries determined by the Secretary of State, the old longer timescales will mostly remain, albeit that the appellant will have to submit their statement of case and a draft statement of common ground when they initially submit their appeal.
  • Important Note: Please see below for significantly more details about all of the above.
