Frequently asked questions

Who is notified of site application?

We are not under a statutory duty to notify neighbours of the proposal, however for reasons of best practice we write to occupiers of directly adjoining properties to advise them of the application. In addition we advertise certain applications in the local newspapers. These are normally applications for development affecting listed buildings, sites in a conservation area, large scale major development and those affecting a public right of way. Where relevant we also consult with statutory bodies such as Essex County Council Highways or the Council’s own Environmental Health Department. The local Parish or Town Council are also consulted.
