Any such company aggrieved by the neglect or refusal of the authority having such jurisdiction to grant such permit, or by the terms and conditions therein imposed, may appeal to the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, which may, upon giving reasonable notice of such appeal and of the time and place where it will be heard, determine whether such permit ought to be granted, or such terms and conditions altered, and may, subject to such right of appeal to the Superior Court as provided in the case of other orders, authorizations and decisions of the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, grant such permit in writing upon such terms and conditions as to the carrying on of such work as it finds just and reasonable.
