The Appeal Process
Step 3: Arranging the hearing
The Tribunal sends an acknowledgment to the appellant.
The Tribunal notifies the respondent council that an appeal has been made and sends a copy of the Notice of Appeal and any direction extending the time limit.
If a postal decision has been requested, the Tribunal will notify the appellant of the week in which the appeal is likely to be decided.
If either party requests a personal hearing, it will be scheduled for the next suitable place, date and time. The parties will receive at least 21 days' notice. If the appointment is not convenient, the Tribunal will accommodate the parties as far as it considers reasonable.
If a telephone hearing has been requested, the Tribunal will inform the parties whether one will be offered.
