Before publishing applications and supporting documents on our website, we take reasonable steps to remove personal telephone numbers, email addresses and signatures.

Any comments you make will be made available online through the council website. You should only include information that you are happy for the public to see. Representations containing discriminatory or defamatory comments will not be published.
Anonymous comments can not be taken into consideration by the case officer. We will redact email addresses, telephone numbers and signatures but names and addresses will be visible.
We will acknowledge your comments within five working days of receiving them and confirm that we will consider them as part of the decision making process. The timescales for the determination of a planning application can vary as the actual time taken is dependent on the complexity of the application and the material issues raised on a case by case basis.
We will tell you about our decision when it is made and provide reasons for that decision.
If the person who is making the application appeals against our decision to the Planning Inspectorate, your comments on the application, which are already publicly available, will also be forwarded for their consideration. Find out more information on planning appeals.
If you are affected by a development proposal, you will have a chance to consider what is proposed, and how it will affect you. You also have the opportunity to make your views known to us before we make a decision on the application.
