When a parent seeks permission to appeal against the placement order or permission to apply to revoke the placement order, the local authority is faced with decisions about how to avoid delay in progressing the adoption plan for the child that the court has authorised, while also respecting the parent’s legal right to either appeal or to seek to revoke the order.
