What happens once I have commented?

What happens once I have commented on a planning application?

Due to the large numbers of letters received we will not be able to acknowledge your comments but the points raised will be taken into consideration when the application is determined. The Council will not respond to individual correspondence, however, all relevant planning matters raised will be taken into account when a decision is made on the application. Your letter will be kept on the application file and published on the web page when it has been received. Please allow at least three weeks for comments to appear on our website.

If significant changes are made to an application

If significant changes are made to an application, further comments may be invited with a revised deadline set. Where minor amendments are made, especially those likely to overcome objections, there is unlikely to be further consultation.

In the event of an applicant making an appeal, copies of comments received will be passed on to the Planning Inspectorate.
