Appeals against notices

Anybody served with an enforcement notice has a right of appeal to Scottish Ministers. We will let anyone know about the appeal if they have sent us information on the breach.

If an appeal is made, the notice will have no effect until the Scottish Ministers make a decision on it. This may take a number of months from when the appeal is made. During this time, the unauthorised activity may continue. If the Scottish Ministers agree with us and decide that the person responsible should keep to the notice, they may give them extra time for this to be done. Or, the Scottish Ministers may cancel the notice.

There is no right of appeal against a breach of condition notice, a stop notice, a temporary stop notice or a fixed-penalty notice.
