Development appeals process


These pages describe appeals that can be made to the Court against a consent authority’s determination about a development application.


They outline:

  • appeals that can be made in this Class
  • who has rights of appeal
  • when the appeal must be made
  • how to file an appeal
  • what to expect during the process of your appeal.

The information here does not apply to appeals concerning certain types of residential developments (and other developments defined by s 34AA of the Land and Environment Court Act 1979). These appeals are handled differently by the Court and are described separately in residential development appeals.
