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
Parking Government policy
Highway safety Disabled access
Traffic Noise
Impact on listed building/conservation area Previous planning decisions
