Can I appeal if my Full Plans application is rejected?
Plans you submit under Full Plans applications will only be rejected if they don't meet the technical requirements of the building regulations, or if you have not provided enough information to show compliance. You can submit plans showing corrected or omitted information.
If you don't agree with the interpretation of the regulatory requirements it's possible to apply to the Secretary of State for a determination provided the work hasn't already started. This will involve an additional cost and can be a lengthy process, so we strongly recommend discussing your plans with your local council if possible.
