Section 68: Council’s statement of reasons for decisions which may be appealed

This Section specifies that when any decision to which Section 67 applies is made, then the council must include a statement informing the person (a) that they may request an explanation of the council’s reason for the decision and (b) of the right to the appeal of this decision under Section 67.  Where a statement of reasons is requested, the council must supply that statement within time for the person to be able to appeal the decision.  This right to a separate statement of reasons does not apply where the reasons for the decision are included in the original notice of the decision.
