In certain circumstances a third party can appeal against the granting of development permission by the Minister. These are known as third party appeals. In order to be entitled to submit such an appeal the third party must have:-
Made a submission to the Minister on the original Planning Application
Have a legal interest in land or any part thereof which is no less than 50 metres from any part of the site in relation to which Planning consent has been given.
In Jersey a third party planning appeal must be submitted to the Royal Court within 28 days of the date of the permit. The time limits are rigidly applied and accordingly instructions in respect of any third party application must be given promptly.
If the appeal is successful the original permit will be set aside. It should be borne in mind however that if the appeal is unsuccessful the third party may be liable for the costs of the Applicant and the Minister.
