LDC APPEALS 

Where your application is:-

You can appeal to the Secretary of State, on forms obtainable from the DTLR or Welsh or Scottish Office if unobtainable from your Council.

The appeal is made on the basis that the council's decision is not well founded and the Inspector will determine on this basis.

Appeals are dealt with in the same way as those for planning applications (see planning appeals) and may be allowed (in part or entirely) or dismissed. Appeals against the Secretary of States decision to the High Court can only be made on a point of law.

Costs on appeal are normally met by each party on their own behalf. But a claim for costs against the other party to the appeal may be made where it can be shown that that party acted 'unreasonably', either in bringing or causing the appeal to be brought in the first place, or by virtue of their conduct during the appeal.
