Finding status of planning application refused by local authority and sent to appeal

My local authority, the London Borough of Barnet has refused planning for extra floors / storeys on a local block - following active opposition by local residents.

On Barnet's website the status is "Decision: Prior Approval Required and Refused"

The Appeal status is: "Appeal Status Unknown"

Somewhere I read (maybe it was in a circular from the residents' committee), that the application refusal has been "appealed" by the developer and referred to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. I have tried to find the status of this appeal on the website, section:CaseSearch entering various search criteria such as the postcode of the proposed development - but the site returns no found entries.

1. Am I searching in the correct place for this planning appeal?
2. Is there a website that describes the process for following this application / appeal? I have read the process is "calling in" a planning application - but beyond that I can't find the process to follow or get involved in this application / appeal - if that is possible.

Thanks in advance for any clarification anyone can offer on this part of the planning process.

Question also posted on diydoctor forum.

With an Appeal Status showing as ‘unknown’ usually means an appeal has not (yet) been submitted. If an Appeal has been submitted but a decision has not yet been made, it may show something like ‘Pending”. If an Appeal has been approved, it may show ‘Allowed’. You can also check the uploaded documents on the LPA’s website as all Appeal information is uploaded to the previously refused application.
