Due to the large number of representations received by the department it is not possible to acknowledge or respond to individual comments.

Comments will be considered by the Case Officer in reviewing the proposals, and any material considerations raised will be evaluated and attributed appropriate weight within the planning determination. Comments are summarised within reports by the Case Officer, and considered accordingly. Should you wish to see how matters raised were considered in the determination of an application, please review the Officers report (for Delegated Decisions) or Planning Committee report which are made available on the Councils website.

You should be aware that the great majority of planning applications are delegated to officers of the Council to determine.  However, in certain circumstances they are referred to the Council's Development Management Committee for determination

In the event of an Appeal, copies of comments received will be provided to the Planning Inspectorate for consideration as part of legislative requirements.
