Read minutes and agendas

The Scottish Government requires each planning authority to have a Review Body for planning applications. The function of the Planning Review Body (PRB) is to determine requests by applicants for smaller, local developments that have either been:

  1. Refused by officers under delegated powers;
  2. Approved by officers under delegated powers subject to conditions; or
  3. Have not been determined within the period allowed for determination, whether the statutory period or other agreed timescale.

Further details of the terms of reference for the Review Body can be found in Circular 5/2013: Schemes of delegation and local reviews. For details of powers and duties of committees and officers, refer to the Council’s Scheme of Delegation.
