After you have submitted your written comments, you will receive a letter or email acknowledging receipt. A petition with more than one name on it will be counted as one representation. We will take all comments received within the agreed time periods into account when determining the application. All comments received will be available for the public to view, including online. We will not publish your personal data, such as your signature, email address or phone number, online.
Depending on the number of objections, the application may be dealt with under delegated powers or by the Planning Development Management Committee. In all instances, the case officer will prepare a report on the proposal, and will refer to the letters received, summarising the points raised and include an evaluation of the issues. The report will make a recommendation to the Committee as to how the application should be determined.
If the application is referred to the Committee, copies of the letters received will either be circulated to members of the Committee or made available for inspection on the day of the meeting. All meetings are held in public, and you may attend to listen to the debate.
Once a decision has been made, each person who has submitted a letter regarding an application will be advised in writing of the decision.
