Planning applications are subject to defined consultation periods, within which the majority of comments are expected to be received.

It is important to get your comments in on time, and prompt submission of comments is encouraged. Comments submitted during the consultation period will be fully considered. If you submit beyond this period there is a risk a decision may have been taken before your comments are received [1].

[1] The Council will endeavour to consider comments submitted after the end of the consultation period, up until the day the recommendation is completed However the Council cannot be held responsible if your comments are received after the consultation period has closed and a decision has already been taken.
