A Guide to Planning Appeals in Scotland


3 Who can make an appeal?

The right to make an appeal lies only with the person or organisation who either:

  • made the application to the council, seeking a consent; or
  • has been served with a notice (for example, an enforcement notice) and/or has an interest in the land covered by that notice.

There is no right of appeal for anyone else to challenge a council's planning decision or action. But there are other opportunities for anyone to get involved and make their views known at various stages of the wider planning process.
