Here’s another alarming  stat: since 3rd August last year, almost 10 percent of all appeals submitted have been bounced by DPEA, because an application for a review should have been made to a Local Review Body instead.

This might be just a teething problem. However, planning authorities’ Schemes of Delegation often make it difficult to identify whether the decision on your application is delegated or not until the planning officer makes a recommendation to approve or refuse – so how do you know whether to appeal or seek a review of the non-determination? (See this scheme of delegation or this one).

If you’ve experienced problems, I am interested to hear from you.
