There are no third party rights of appeal therefore only the applicant (or a representative acting on their behalf) can apply.
How you appeal your planning decision depends on how the decision was made. In any case, an appeal must be submitted within 3 months of the date of the decision notice, or in the case of an appeal against non-determination, 3 months from the expiry of the prescribed 2 or 4 month period for determining the application.
If your application was determined by a planning officer under the Council’s Scheme of Delegation then any appeal will be reviewed by the Local Review Body. A Notice of Review form can be downloaded from our website and sent to the address below. Alternatively, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email you an application form.

When a decision was taken at the Planning Committee then any appeal must be made to the Scottish Government’s Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA). The easiest way to do this is via the e-Development portal on our website or you can request paper forms from the DPEA direct. Full details of how to appeal can also be found on their website:
