(b)that, in reaching the decision, the local authority or, as the case may be, the Scottish Ministers erred in law, or

(c)that there was a failure to comply with a procedural requirement contained in this schedule or regulations made under it.

(6)The sheriff may, on the application of the appellant, suspend the operation of the scheme, or of any part of it, either generally or insofar as it affects any interest in land which the appellant has, pending determination of the appeal.

(b)an error of law, or
