You have an opportunity to comment on any application, by following the links above. When doing so you are encouraged to make it clear whether you wish to object to, support or just make general comments regarding the proposals. Planning officers will consider all comments before reaching a final decision. However, they can only consider comments on matters which relate to the land-use of the site. These are called “Material Planning Considerations” and include:
- the appearance of the proposal in terms of design/scale
- siting and materials
- traffic, parking or access issues
- residential amenity (noise, overshadowing public rooms, privacy)
- drainage and infrastructure
- impact on the natural or built environment.
