Share this page

The Planning Panel was established in April 2009 under the Land Planning and Development (Guernsey) Law, 2005 as an independent statutory body to determine appeals against planning decisions made by the Development & Planning Authority.

  • About the Planning Panel

    • The Planning Panel whilst assisted administratively through the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure is independent of any States' Committee or body, It is supported by its own Secretariat and operates within the provisions set out in The Land Planning and Development legislation.
    • Anybody wishing to appeal a decision of the Development & Planning Authority should, in the first instance consult the guidance notes and other information on this website.
    • The Planning Panel's Secretary is available to answer any questions and can be contacted at Sir Charles Frossard House (telephone - 717284 or 717000) or by email - or in writing:
    • The Secretary to the Planning Panel, Sir Charles Frossard House, La Charroterie, St Peter Port, Guernsey GY1 1FH
  • How to make a Planning Appeal

    • Full details of how to appeal a planning decision (e.g. a decision refusing an application for planning permission, the issue of a Compliance or Completion Notice or the decision to add a building to the List of Protected Buildings or to make a tree subject of a Tree Protection Order), together with details of the relevant legislation, can be found in the attached guidance notes.
    • Anybody considering appealing a planning decision of the Development & Planning Authority should read the guidance notes before submitting their appeal.
    • The appeal forms can also be downloaded from this site and contain details of the information which must be included with any appeal.
    • Please note that planning decision made on or before 1 November 2016 will be determined against the planning policies set out in the Urban Area Plan or Rural Area Plan and not the new Island Development Plan which was adopted by the States of Deliberation on 2 November 2016.  The Planning Tribunal can only consider an appeal against a refusal of planning permission on the basis of the materials, evidence and facts before the Development & Planning Authority at the time it reached its decision.
