A person who was a representor to a category 3 development can apply to join an appeal by completing an “application to be joined as a party” form, which will be posted to them by the Court. The form must be returned to the Court within 7 business days and the applicant must then attend the application hearing at the date and time as set out in their notice.
If a person is not a representor to a category 3 development, and wishes to apply to join an appeal in the Court, they need to complete the Form 77I Interlocutory Application to be joined;
The application form, or letter must be returned to the Court as soon as possible.
Generally, the application to be joined will be heard immediately before the preliminary conference starts. It is, however, possible to make an application to be joined at a later stage in the appeal proceedings, in which arrangements will be made for the application to be heard at a convenient time. If the person applying to be joined does not attend the application to join, it is likely to be dismissed or ‘struck out’.
