Notice of Appeal
A person who wants to appeal an order or a decision must serve the Minister with a notice of appeal, within 15 days of the date he/she is notified of the order or the decision.
This notice should give all the particulars of the order or decision and explain the grounds for the appeal. The person making the appeal must also supply a New Brunswick address for the delivery of documents from the Minister.
The notice can be delivered in person or it can be sent by prepaid registered or certified mail to the Deputy Minister of the Department of Environment, P.O. Box 6000, Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 5H1.
Five days after the mailing date, any documents sent by prepaid registered or certified mail are considered to have been delivered.
The person making the appeal may choose to explain the grounds for appeal in writing, including any supporting documents or related information.
This submission must be made, in writing, within 30 days of the original decision or order. It can be delivered in person or sent by prepaid registered or certified mail.
The Minister's Response
Once the written submission is received, or when the deadline for submissions has passed, the Minister will have 30 days in which to respond. The Minister may choose to confirm, vary or revoke the appealed decision or order.
This response will be delivered in writing, with reasons, to the person making the appeal. If any other person was notified of the original decision or order, that person will also be given a copy of the Minister's response.
These documents can be delivered in person, or they can be sent by registered or certified mail to the last address reported to the Minister. Five days after the mailing date, any documents sent by prepaid registered or certified mail are considered to have been delivered.
