2) Know what to include
The Council can only take into account ‘material planning considerations’ (the things you can object to) when looking at your comments. There are many of these but we have listed the ones with feel are most relevant to this objection.
- Nature conservation
- Local, strategic, regional and national planning policies
- Proposals in the Development Plan
- Noise and disturbance resulting from use
- Effect on listed building and conservation area
- Design, appearance and materials
- Overlooking/loss of privacy
- Visual amenity (but not loss of private view)
- Layout and density of building
The Council cannot take into account matters which are sometimes raised but are not normally planning considerations such as:
- The loss of a view
- The impact of construction work or competition between firms
- Personal morals or views about the applicant.
Explain in detail why you are objecting – the planning officer does not expect you to be a planning consultant so feel free to use your own words to express yourself.
Please feel free to use any of our concerns. You may have your own concerns and wish to object to them as well.
