A planning authority may take enforcement action if it thinks that development has been carried out without the required planning permission or where a person has failed to comply with a condition attached to a permission.
You have the right to make a planning enforcement appeal to Scottish Ministers where:
- a planning authority serves an enforcement notice on you and your land specifically
- you have an interest in the land covered by the notice
The attached guidance explains:
- what the appeals process is
- how to complete and submit your form
- how to get in touch
- how to submit documents to the DPEA electronically
There is no fee for this type of appeal. Everybody who participates in the process is normally expected to cover their own expenses.
This appeal can also be made using the eplanning portal.
This form and guidance relates to appeals made under:
- Section 130 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 and
- the Town and Country Planning (Appeals) (Scotland) Regulations 2013
