Search Planning Applications

During the current issues around Covid-19 the Planning and Building Control Service will be having to adapt the service it can provide.

Further information on what services we are able to offer are available on our Planning and Building Control page

Please ensure when submitting comments on a Planning Application they are limited to the proposed scheme.  No reference should be made to a third party and no information should be included that could be considered inappropriate.  You should have regard to the GDPR Regulations and ensure no information is included that would fall under the Special Category.  These include:

  • Race and ethnic origin;
  • Religious or philosophical beliefs;
  • Political opinions;
  • Trade union memberships;
  • Biometric data used to identify an individual;
  • Genetic data; Health data;
  • Data related to sexual preferences, sex life, and/or sexual orientation

If comments are found to contain any of this information they will be removed from the public website although Case Officers will still have visibility of them

Comments should therefore only address material planning considerations and although we can receive comments on matters which are not material to the Planning Application, only those material planning considerations are taken into account when determining any planning application. 

Material considerations are (for example):

  • Traffic and Parking
  • Appearance of the area
  • Impact on Conservation Area or Listed Building
  • Noise and Disturbance
  • Overshadowing
  • Privacy

Non-material considerations might be (for example):

  • Loss of private view
  • effect on property values
  • derogatory remarks about applicants or neighbours
