Someone has made an unfair comment on my planning application - what should I do?

Comments submitted to Planning Services on planning applications should be restricted to matters relating to planning law and opinions relating to the planning proposals and any material considerations.

Personal comments about applicants are not acceptable, as are comments that are offensive, malicious or make unfounded allegations. We aim to remove any comments that are not acceptable as soon as they are identified, but if you see any that you consider unacceptable please contact the planning enquiries team or the case officer to discuss this matter further.

We would normally notify anyone who has had their comment removed.

Guildford Borough Council cannot take responsibility for comments made by members of the public but will monitor all comments submitted to us in line with the guidelines set out above. For further details please visit our webpage on submitting a comment.
