What happens to your comments
We will record your comments and consider them, and if the application goes to the Planning Committee we will pass them on.
Where appropriate we will seek changes to the Planning Application to overcome concerns. If changes are made to the application we may consult you again.
In all cases we will let you know the decision.
Please be aware that Planning Enforcement is a discretionary power and it might not always be in the wider public interest for action to be taken on a breach of planning control where it does not cause serious harm to public amenity.
Formal action will only be taken when it can be demonstrated that the breach causes serious harm to public amenity and it is expedient and in the public interest to do so. What action is taken will be dependent on the seriousness of the harm.
For more information on commenting on a planning application please see the comment on planning application leaflet.
