If you wish to make comments on an application - objections, support or general comment you can do so online on Public Access. You can also write to us quoting the application number and you must include your name and address. You have 21 days to do this and if you use Public Access your comment will be acknowledged. Any comments you send to us will be displayed on the internet on Public Access within 5 working days.
We do not consider anonymous comments but you can print your name instead of signing your comments if you do not want your signature to be shown on the internet.
There are limits to the range of concerns that a planning authority is allowed to take into account when making decisions. Full details are available on our leaflet from the Downloads below.
You can use the track facility on Public Access to monitor progress of the application and be notified by e mail of any changes or updates including the decision. A manual is available from the Downloads to help you do this. There are no rights of appeal for third parties (objectors) who are unhappy with the planning decision.
