Make a comment

You can view and comment on planning applications using the online planning register.

You can also view our weekly planning list which provides details of recently registered applications, Proposal of Application Notices (PAN's) and recent decisions.

What you can comment on

We can only consider planning matters in dealing with an application, such as:

  • planning policies
  • Character/design of the area
  • character of the building
  • noise and disturbance
  • significant loss of light
  • loss of privacy
  • traffic generation and road safety car parking

we cannot consider:

  • loss of view
  • property values
  • personal disagreements
  • boundary disputes, and title restrictions 

Please note that any comments/representations made by you will be available for public inspection and will be published on the on-line register.

What happens next

All objections and comments will be acknowledged.  Although we will take into account all of the letters received, due to staff resources and the volume of letters, it is not always possible to respond individually to queries raised or meet interested parties. All those who made a representation to the application will be advised of the decision made on an application.

Our commenting on planning applications guidance outlines the process of commenting on an application and how your comments and objections will be dealt with.
