P-05-843 More Third party rights in planning appeals

This petition was submitted by Emma Eynon, having collected 59 signatures.

Text of Petition

We, the undersigned, call on the Welsh Government to introduce legislation which will grant more rights for third parties to appeal on planning decisions. Currently, even those who are directly affected by planning approvals are considered as third parties to applications and have little or no rights to appeal or even to input into planning conditions. The judicial review process is aimed at developers and the time limit of six weeks to submit such an application is not suitable for community action groups. Third parties should have the same rights as a developer to appeal in planning decisions and should not have to send all communications through the elected ward member.
