Planning appeals and reviews

Planning appeals

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

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 accompanying 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 from 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 the Council has 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.
