Comment on planning applications

Making comments


The easiest and quickest way to comment on a planning application is to submit comments on a planning application via our online form. If you have the planning application number to hand enter it into the planning application search page, if you do not have the application number you can search the planning application database.

Please note that all comments, whether objecting to or supporting a proposal, are made available for public inspection via our website. Comments cannot be treated as confidential and therefore names and addresses will be published. Please allow 3 working days for an officer to moderate, redact any personal information (e.g. email and telephone numbers) and upload your comments.

In order for comments to be taken into account and deemed valid a full name and postal address must be provided.

You can also submit comments to us by letter or email, contact details for this are below.

Decision Notices

These provide the outcome of a planning application. A copy of the decision notice is sent to the applicant (or their agent if one has been appointed to make the application on someone’s behalf). A copy is also sent to the relevant parish council or parish meeting. All decision notices are available online and if you have made comments on an application you can find out the outcome by looking up the application on our application tracker.
