This means that the applicant cannot implement the decision until the appeal has been processed and the outcome announced. </p> <p>If the appeal is received within the prescribed time period and is therefore valid, it is circulated to the relevant parties for a response. Once these responses have been received and the reasons for the appeal have been considered, a report is prepared and sent to the Office of the Executive Mayor. </p> <p>The Executive Mayor, being the appeal authority, will make a final decision and all parties will be informed in writing. Written notice of the decision, including reasons to the parties of the appeal, will be delivered within 30 days of the decision.</p> <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Contact us</h2></span> <p>You can visit the <a href="">Development Management Department</a> for more assistance or information. </p> <p>Please refer to the department <a href="" target="_blank">co​​ntact list​</a> for your relevant planning office contact details.</p></span>GP0|#4f98ad27-0b27-4411-b4e3-5416db4deb38;L0|#04f98ad27-0b27-4411-b4e3-5416db4deb38|Land use applications;GTSet|#a7cfb90d-44ad-4426-98ce-565f79932396;GPP|#9275a209-368e-4cea-9874-8ce96591717b;GPP|#54dbab3a-0b2f-4602-8af5-3d651c59a5f4;GP0|#594250da-960b-4c8e-8303-1a66292d3514;L0|#0594250da-960b-4c8e-8303-1a66292d3514|Appeal a decision;GPP|#1b55b434-a2ae-4e69-8f9e-f13081f551c3If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your land use management application, you can appeal the decision. 0
