Scottish Ministers may intervene in determining a planning proposal, whether an application or an appeal, where it is felt there is a national interest in doing so. We make all correspondence between ourselves, planning authorities and Historic Environment Scotland relating to each case's progress available to the public.


A decision by ministers is final. However, you may seek an appeal to the Court of Session within 6 weeks of the final decision. The Court of Session cannot change a decision, but it can force Ministers to reconsider one.
