Scheduled monument consent appeals: form and guidance

Guidance notes and form to submit an appeal to Scottish Ministers.

You have the right to make a scheduled monument consent appeal to Scottish Ministers where Historic Environment Scotland:

  • has refused your application
  • has imposed conditions you disagree with
  • has not issued a decision within the set timescale

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
Your appeal must be made within three months of the date of Historic Environment Scotland's decision. Or within three months from the date the decision should have been issued. Appeals made after this cannot be considered.

There is no fee for this type of appeal. Everybody who participates in the process is normally expected to cover their own expenses.

You can track the progress of your appeal online.
