A letter clarifying our position on local review procedures.

Local Review Procedures

The issue of whether, or not, reviews by Local Review Bodies (LRBs) should be conducted by means of a full consideration of the application afresh (De Novo), or whether they are solely a review of the appointed officer's decision has been raised regularly by delegates of the Local Review Body forum.

By way of clarification and in the interests of consistency, Annex A sets out the Scottish Government's position on this matter and confirms that the 'de novo' approach should be adopted in determining cases brought before LRBs.

I hope this information is helpful in setting out the Scottish Government's position on this particular matter.
