Who will know about my application?

The council must meet certain publicity requirements before a decision can be made on an application. There are a number of methods that we use to inform people about applications that may affect them.

  • A site notice may be displayed near the application site.
  • People living near to the application site may be notified by letter of the application.
  • In some cases we will also put an advert in the local paper (Eastern Daily Press - usually on a Monday).
  • We also inform Parish and Town Councils about applications in their area.
  • We may notify other internal and external professional bodies of applications if specialist advice is required.
  • Your application will also be published on the Breckland Council website and can be viewed through the Planning Application Search facility.
  • Interested parties will have 21 days to make any comments.
