How to make a valid planning comment:

Comments on Planning Applications are only valid if they include the following:

  • Include reference to the planning application (e.g. 2017/0492/ARM)
    (it is good practice to also describe this: e.g. “Building of up to 212 dwellings on Altys Brickworks and adjoining Greenfield”)
  • You must include Your full name & address
  • Don’t use your signature, just print your name
  • Don’t include your telephone number
  • Don’t be rude or abusive or your comment will be rejected
  • If you want your comment to be taken as an objection, use the words “I object” so your intentions are clear
  • A group comment counts as one comment so send individual ones
  • Send your comments by one of the methods shown above
