Tree replacement enforcement notice appeals

Information on what a tree replacement enforcement notice is and how to appeal if you get one.

You have the right to make a tree replacement enforcement notice appeal to Scottish Ministers where a planning authority:

  • serves a notice requiring you, within a set period, to plant a tree or trees of such size and species as specified

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 before the date that the notice is due to come into effect. This date will be clearly stated on the notice itself. You must also send a copy of the appeal to the relevant planning authority.

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.

You can track the progress of your appeal online.
