Anyone who believes they are affected by a decision of the Development Authority may appeal the decision to the Town’s Subdivision and Development Appeal Board by writing a letter to the Secretary of the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board at the Town Office and submitting it with the Appeal Fee of $200.00 within the appeal deadline specified in the notice to the applicant and adjacent owners, notice posted at the Town Office, or newspaper ad, as applicable.
Development appeals may be filed by the applicant or by anyone who believes they are affected by the decision. An appeal might be against the approval or refusal of a development application or it may be simply an appeal of one or more conditions of an approval.
Subdivision appeals may be filed by the applicant, any government department to which the application is required to be referred under legislation or a school authority. Neighbors may not appeal subdivision decisions.
The procedure for Subdivision Appeals is described in Sections 678 to 682 of the Municipal Government Act. The procedure for Development Appeals is described in Sections 683 to 687.
