Publicity and consultations on planning applications
- publish all new applications
- notify next-door neighbours by post
- display site notices and adverts in the press where appropriate
If we notify you of a planning application we will let you know where and when you can see the application.
You will have 21 days to make any comments.
We will notify any neighbours and interested parties if any material changes are made to the application.
In this case, comments are allowed for another 14 days.
Extra publicity is given to large or important applications. More time is allowed for comments if necessary.
You can view information about all valid planning applications through the Public Access planning portal [external link].

For certain significant developments, developers need to carry out pre-application consultations.
You can find out which development we consider "significant" and the activities for potential developers.
