How the meeting is run

At the meeting, both supporters and objectors to any application will be invited to speak. The applicant, police and members also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Members will decide whether or not to take any spent convictions into account when determining the application.

Finally the applicant will be invited to sum up and address any matters that were raised. The committee will then make a decision on the application.

If you are not satisfied with the committee’s decision, you can ask for the reasons for the decision in writing by contacting the clerk.

If you are still not satisfied, you have the right to lodge an appeal with the Sheriff Clerk at Forfar against the committee’s decision. You must do this within 28 days from the date of the decision.
