Abstract

Public participation is a fundamental and long-standing element of our land use planning system. People must feel confident that they have been heard and have had their views taken into account when decisions are made about the future development of their areas. Those who have applied for planning permission, but had it refused by their council, can appeal to the Scottish Executive against that decision. In this consultation we ask whether others who are affected by planning decisions should be allowed a right to appeal.
