Planning and building control

Comment on a planning application

You can comment on all planning applications during the consultation period. For most applications the statutory consultation period is 3 weeks from the date the consultation letters are sent out.

Applications are published on the council's Licensing and Regulations system (LAR).

You can view applications without an account but if you wish to comment on applications you will need to sign in or register for a LAR account.

How to comment

To see if an application is open for comment:

  1. Search for the application you wish to comment on.
  2. If comments are available, the ‘make a representation’ option will be shown underneath the application details and you will be prompted to sign in or create an account.
  3. Add your comment and submit your details.

What happens next?

Your comment will be reviewed by a planning officer and will be taken into consideration as part of the overall decision-making process.
