When and how you can appeal a SuDS decision.

When you can appeal

Your local SuDS Approval Body (SAB) makes decisions on SuDS applications.

You can appeal a SuDS decision if either:

  • you disagree with the SAB’s decision, or
  • the SAB has failed to determine your application within the prescribed period.

There’s no fee for appealing.

Only the person who made the application can appeal.

Deadline for appealing

Appeals must be made within 6 months of:

  • the date of the SAB’s decision; or
  • the SAB’s failure to determine your application within the prescribed period, normally 7 weeks from validation (12 weeks if the application includes an Environmental Impact Assessment).

How to appeal

Fill in a SuDS appeal form

Email or post the appeal form and supporting documentation the Planning Inspectorate. Please ensure a copy of the appeal form is also sent to the SAB.
