Make an appeal

Individuals, corporations and public bodies can appeal a decision of the Committee of Adjustment to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). Visit LPAT for more information on the prescribed fee and to obtain a copy of the appeal form.

If a person or public body that files an appeal of a decision of the Committee of Adjustment does not make written submission to the Committee of Adjustment before it approves or refuses an application, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal may dismiss the appeal.

The applicant, the Minister or any other person or public body who has an interest in the matter may within 20 days of the making of the decision appeal to the Tribunal against the decision of the committee. This would be done by filing with the secretary-treasurer of the committee a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the decision and the reasons in support of the objection. It would be accompanied by payment to the secretary-treasurer of the fee charged by the Tribunal under the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Act, 2017 as payable on an appeal from a committee of adjustment to the Tribunal.

The appeal period is 20 days from the date of the decision. If no notice of appeal is given within 20 days, the decision of the committee is final and binding.
