Planning appeals and reviews

Planning appeals

You can ask for an appeal or a review of your application if you're not happy about the decision or if your application has not yet been decided and the statutory time period for making a decision has expired.

You'll only be able to do one of these, depending on the circumstances of your application. The option available to you will be explained in the documents that come with your planning application decision notice. If you're not sure which it is, contact our Planning and Building Standards office.

What should I do before I appeal?

If we refused permission or added a condition that you don't agree with, talk to us about it first.

If you still feel you want a review or an appeal you must do this within three months of the date of the decision or within three months of the date by which your application should have been decided (if you are appealing because we have not decided your application).

You might like to take a look at planning appeal decisions as well, using the planning appeal search from the Scottish Government's Department of Planning and Environmental Appeals.
