Comment on a planning application
Find out how to make a comment and what can be taken into account
Comments you can make
The Government says we can't consider certain things when deciding a planning application. These are 'planning considerations' and include comments relating to:
- loss of property value
- boundary disputes
- trade competition
- private matters between neighbours (e.g covenants, access rights or property damage)
You can comment about its:
- scale, appearance or design
- effect on the 'amenities' of local residents e.g disturbance, loss of light or privacy
- impact on the character of the area
- use, and whether it is appropriate
- impact on highway safety or parking
- impact on nature, conservation and trees. This includes the character and appearance in a conservation area
- effect on the special architectural or historic interest of a listed building
You can comment even if it is not your application.
