Planning Reviews and Appeals

Planning Reviews and Appeals

Who can make an appeal

There are no third party rights of appeal therefore only the applicant (or a representative acting on their behalf) can apply. 

How to appeal a planning decision

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.

Decisions made by a planning officer

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 and we will email you an application form.

Decisions made by the Planning Committee


When a decision was taken at the Planning Committee then any appeal must be made to the Scottish Government’s Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (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:
