Our state statutes permit "any party aggrieved of the decision" to file an appeal. So essentially a non-resident with no legal or vested interest in the property could file. I dont believe you can require someone to ask permission of a third party prior to filing. Procedurally, Administrative Appeals are slightly different process, but are still qusi-judiciary.rcf said:Anyone out there have an appeal process that requires a party with no interest in the subject property and living a certain distance from the property being required to ask the planning commission's permission to appeal an administrative decision?
donk said:The Appeal process here is completely separate from the Commission. Seems odd to me that a person would have to make a request to the body whose decision they are most likely appealing the right to lodge an appeal, unless I am missing something.
Our Act provides "any person" the right to appeal. Depending under what section (hardship or misapplication) then the question of proximity or interest in adjoing properties comes up.
