The Planning Appeals system in the Isle of Man is governed by Article 8 of the Town and Country Planning (Development Procedure) Order 2005.
In general, the procedure involves persons aggrieved at decisions of the Planning Committee submitting an appeal to the Minister for the Department of Infrastructure.
Appeals are the final stage of the planning application process. The Minister refers the appeal to a Planning Inspector appointed by the Council of Ministers, who considers the evidence and submits a report with recommendations back to the Minister, who then determines the appeal.
The Council of Ministers has appointed a panel of Planning Inspectors to consider planning appeals. The Inspectors are independent, professionally qualified people, from outside the Isle of Man, who have considerable expertise and experience in planning matters.
The Inspectors are supported by the Planning Appeals Secretariat based in the Chief Secretary's Office, Government Offices.
