Is there any recourse if my application is denied?

Where the board denies a request for a special use permit, variance or otherwise rules against the applicant on other than procedural grounds, the board may not consider another application requesting any or all of the same changes for a period of one (1) year from the date of such denial or withdrawal (or from the date of final court action if the decision has been appealed) except: (a) where ordered to do so on remand by a court of competent jurisdiction, or (b) where the application is accompanied by an affidavit setting forth facts, to the satisfaction of said board, showing a substantial change of circumstances justifying a rehearing.
