Local Review Body
If your local application has been refused, or it has not been determined within the specified statutory time period of two months, or you consider that conditions attached to your planning permission are unreasonable, you can seek a review by the Local Review Body. This applies to local applications which have been determined under delegated powers (decisions taken by the Development Management Manager), apart from listed building applications and applications for advertisement consent, which must be appealed to the Scottish Government's Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (new window)
To seek a review by the Local Review Body, you must submit a Notice of Review which sets out why you wish the case to be reviewed, and by what procedure, or combination of procedures, that you wish to be used for the review.
The notice should be addressed to: Local Review Body,
West Lothian Civic Centre,
Howden South Road
The Local Review Body consists of nine elected members and meets every four weeks.

Major applications / committee decisions
If your application is a major application, or was determined by the Development Management Committee, you have the right of appeal to Scottish Ministers (DPEA). The Local Review Body does not deal with these applications.
