Comment on a planning application

Comments that have been received will not appear online until they have been checked and registered. Please submit comments online as these are quicker to register. Comments received by email do take longer to check, register and upload.

Use our public access portal to make comments about a planning application. The portal is available for the public to sign up to. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one. Your comment must support or oppose the application, it cannot be neutral. Ensure that you register using your home address for the comment to be accepted. We aim to submit your comments and make them available online in ten working days. This might take longer if we're busy.

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.

The public can see any comments you make online. Your name will appear next to your comments, but we'll remove other personal information such as your home address. Any comments we publish will stay online for four years.

We will not put comments online if they make disparaging remarks about:

  • the owner of a property or
  • anyone who can be identified
