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.
