Commenting on a planning application

View and comment/object

When an application has been validated and the status is set as registered, you can submit comments by the deadline date shown. You must make your comments within three weeks of the application being submitted or within four weeks if the application is subject to Environmental Impact Assessment. If you wish to make comments after this time period and the application has not yet been decided, please contact the case officer to see if comments can still be made. Remember your comments are made public. We will not publish any comments which we consider to be defamatory or offensive and they will not be taken into consideration when determining the application.

Use the planning application portal (Public Access) to find a planning application.  For guidance on how to use Public Access, please see our Public Access Guide.

You can also see applications on Public Access at our Planning and Building Standards office. You can also write or email your comments to these offices. We no longer hold paper copies of plans within libraries and local offices, however if you require to see them please contact one of our local offices.
