Comment on a planning application

Online Planning Register

All representations received must be made available for public inspection, in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985.

Provision is made within the Data Protection Act 2018 for publishing such information which means that we cannot treat such documentation or representations as confidential.

You will need to include your full name and address in order for your comment to be registered. If you don’t, your comments will be considered anonymous and your views cannot be taken into account.

Whilst we will redact any information such as telephone numbers and email addresses under Data Protection rules so these are not visible online, your name and address will be available.

Only comments relating to 'material planning considerations' can be taken into account.

Note: We do not enter into individual correspondence about representations on applications but do take account of your comments as part of the process of assessing the application.

Where appropriate we will seek changes to the Planning Application to overcome concerns. If changes are made to the application, we may consult you again. In all cases we will let you know the decision.

The report prepared to inform the decision-making process (whether for Committee decisions or an officer delegated decision) summarises all the representations and assesses the issues raised in the context of relevant planning policies.

This report can be viewed on the Planning Applications Register once prepared and we will inform you in writing of the decision reached.
