Renfrewshire Council

Make a planning appeal

This page explains how to lodge an appeal if you are unhappy with the way your application has been dealt with.

You can appeal if your application has been refused, you want to challenge one or more of the conditions made in your consent notice, or you didn't get a decision before the two month deadline passed.

There are two types of appeal.

Where a planning application is refused by the planning board, you can appeal to the Scottish Ministers.

The relevant forms and guidance for doing this can be found on the Scottish Government website.

Where a planning application is refused by planning officers, you can appeal to a local review body made up of five Renfrewshire Councillors. This body meets in public and decides how notices of review should be dealt with.

How to appeal to a local review body

To make an appeal to a local review body, you must complete a 'notice of review' form within three months of the date you received your planning decision notice.

If you didn't get a decision before the two month deadline, your form should be submitted within three months of this deadline date.

You should email your completed Notice of Review and any supporting documents to lrb-planning.cs@renfrewshire.gov.uk or write to:

Head of Legal and Democratic Services
Finance and Corporate Services
Renfrewshire House
Cotton Street
Paisley
PA1 1TR

The applicant and any interested parties will be kept aware of their notice of review's progress while it is being considered.

Notices currently being considered and the previous decisions made by the local review body are available to view in the Related Articles section.
