Step 3 – Ministerial Decision

Step 3 – Ministerial Decision

The various parties asked to submit their views must do so within 60 days of your application being received by us.

Once we have those views, we will send them to you for any response to those views, which you must return within another 60 days.

Once the 60 days to submit a response have passed, Scottish Ministers will not reach a decision before 60 days after the deadline for your response. We will give written notice of that decision to you and to everyone who was invited to give their views on your application. This notice will also be sent to the Keeper of the Register. This notice will explain Ministers reasons and the consequences of the decision (including information about rights of appeal).

If that decision is to refuse your application, the prohibition is lifted.
