Have your say on a planning application
What can I comment on?
All comments on planning applications must be based on 'material planning considerations.'
When determining a planning application, the council can only take material considerations into account.
Non-material considerations, such as loss of property value, private issues between neighbours and opposition to business competition, cannot be taken into account.
Material considerations can include:
|Overlooking/loss of privacy||Layout and density of building|
|Loss of light or overshadowing||Design, appearance and materials|
|Highway safety||Disabled access|
|Impact on listed building/conservation area||Previous planning decisions|
