Making a representation

In line with the council’s agreed Statement of Community Involvement, from 1 July onwards we will no longer be sending neighbour notification letters for planning applications, unless these are specifically required by legislation. All applications will continue to be publicised via site notices, and press notices will also be used where required by law. Details of all applications will still be published online, and we will continue to consult statutory organisations and town and parish councils.  We recommend making a copy of your representation text. You should receive an automated response once you have submitted your representation. If you do not receive this, please contact the relevant team.

Type/area of application

Comments taken into consideration

We receive a large number of comments on planning applications. This means we cannot enter into detailed discussions with individual concerns raised.  Your comments should be based on material consideration. This will be taken into account when deciding a planning application or on an appeal against a planning decision.

Planning history searches

If you are unable to find the application that you are searching for using the searches above, you can contact us with details of the site or application and we will search for it for you. Depending on the type of information you are asking for, there may be a fee of £50. Contact us by email to find out more.

 Request for confirmation of compliance with legal agreements

Any request for confirmation of compliance with a specific agreement or agreements is treated as an application and is subject to a fee of £116. Please note that once the application has been registered, it will have a target time of 8 weeks for a response.  If you request information relating only to the payment of financial obligations with a specific agreement or agreements, this is also a chargeable request and also requires a fee of £116. Requests can be sent by email to . We will aim to respond to all such requests within 10 working days of payment.
