Appeal Tribunals in Land Use Planning: Look-Alikes or Different Species? A Comparative Analysis of Oregon, England and Israel

There has been little study of appeal tribunals in planning-related land use conflicts. This article compares appeal tribunals in Oregon, England, and Israel, looking at the ways in which institutions are involved in the development of policies. It was found that there is a wide variety in terms of the model of adjudication and in terms of the powers and responsibilities vested in the tribunals. Planning systems and related appeal systems are complex in all three of the examined locations. The comparison of models of adjudication and appeal tribunals discussed in this article provide a basis for comparing approaches to resolving panning conflicts.
