The Town and Country Planning Act 1990 only requires the Secretary of State to confirm an order revoking planning permission made by a local authority under Section 97 of the Act where it is opposed by the person on whom it is served. According to available records, the Secretary of State has been asked to confirm 25 revocation orders.

The Secretary of State has not confirmed or overturned any revocation orders since 2016.
