You can comment on a planning application online. Use our public access portal to make comments about a planning application. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one.
What you need to know
Your comment must support or oppose the application, it cannot be neutral. For us to accept your comment you need to register using your home address. Only send us your comments once. If you submit online, do not send the same comment by email or post. This makes it take longer for us to upload comments and make them available to a caseworker.
We aim to submit your comments and make them available online in ten working days. During busy times this may take longer.
The public can see any comments you make online. Your name will appear next to your comments, but we remove information like your home address. Any comments we publish will stay online for four years.
We will not put comments online if they make remarks about:
- the owner of a property or
- anyone who can be identified
