Comments about applications

Only comments which raise material planning considerations will be taken into account.  However, other representations we receive (that are not necessarily material planning considerations) are also likely to be made public on our Public Access site. Online comments will form part of the overall representations made and be collated with normal letters of representation (comment, objection or support) for a planning application or development.

There are restrictions in place. This facility will be moderated. The use of inappropriate words and phrases are not allowed. Salacious, malicious and defamatory comments are not allowed and appropriate action will be taken if such comments are found.  The online comment facility is for your use, to increase your input into the planning process. Please do not abuse it.
