Some, but not all permits and decisions of Council related to applications and permits may be appealed to a Provincial Appeal Board by any person aggrieved of a decision.
Please contact the Department of Municipal Affairs for Newfoundland and Labrador for more information at (709)729-3090 or visit their website: http://www.ma.gov.nl.ca/ma/for/appeals.html
The Appeal Board may consider procedural issues or inappropriate use of the discretion of Council. One of the requirements of Council, however; is to reach decisions on applications. The Appeal Board cannot overrule a discretionary decision by Council.
