10. Appeals and Local Reviews

If an applicant does not agree with the decision of a planning authority then they can ask for a review or appeal of the decision. They can also ask for a review or appeal if the authority doesn't make a decision within the time period set by law.

If the application was decided by a planning officer on behalf of the authority, then the decision is reviewed by the Local Review Body, which is a group of councillors. If the application was decided by councillors, then the appeal is made to Scottish Ministers.

Local Review Bodies dealt with 550 cases in 2016/17, of which 55.6% had the original decision upheld. In the previous year 60.2% (545 cases) had the original decision upheld. ( Annual, 2016/17: Table 30)

In addition, 48.2% (280 cases) of delegated appeals to Scottish Ministers in 2016/17 had the original decision upheld. This compares with 47.1% (344 cases) for 2015/16. ( Annual, 2016/17: Table 31)
