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.

Material considerations include local, strategic and national planning policies, highway issues, noise and loss of privacy.

Non-material considerations cannot be taken into account when considering a planning application.

Non-material considerations include loss of property value, private issues between neighbours and opposition to business competition.
