Part 5: Enforcement.

Section 145: Appeal against enforcement notice – supplementary provisions relating to planning permission

When determining an appeal under section 143 the Planning Appeals Commission can grant planning permission for the matters the notice refers to, change the conditions of an existing permission or issue a certificate of lawfulness of existing use or development. The Planning Appeals Commission must notify the appellant of the amount of the planning application fee and specify the period within which it must be paid. If the fee is not paid within that period then the appeal on the planning merits will lapse.
