The Council is keen to give people who may be affected by a development the opportunity to express their views. The manner in which the Council publicises applications is in line with statutory legislation, and varies on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the Councils adopted Statement of Community Involvement.

Comments (also known as representations) for current applications can be submitted online by following the link on the application page you wish to comment on. This is the quickest and easiest way to provide comments to the Council.

Alternatively, comments can be submitted by email or by letter - if commenting by either email or letter, please quote the planning application reference number (eg S18/XXXX) in all correspondence.

All representations received in respect of a planning application will be processed in accordance with the various Town & Country Planning Acts [1].

[1] In particular the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 including any amendments, consequential, subsequent or supplemental legislation such as the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015.
