Comment on a planning application

How to comment on or object to a planning application (including online submission).

You can give us your comments, either in support of, or objecting to live (undecided) planning applications as below.

The public have a minimum period of 21 days in which to submit any comments to the council. In practice, where the decision is delegated to council officers, we accept comments up until the day that any planning application is decided. Where the decision is to be made by the Planning Applications Committee, we accept comments up until the date that the committee report is completed i.e. no later than the Tuesday of the week before the committee meeting takes place. You can submit your comments/objections by email, in writing or, preferably, using the online planning service that also allows you to view current planning applications.

For users already registered with the system, you can log in directly at:

For further advice on what you can comment on, what we can and can't take into account in reaching our decision and how to use our online planning service, please read the following sections.
