Planning objections

The planning system is intended to let all interested people have a say in a planning application. All members of the public are allowed to make objections to planning applications. 


If there is a planning proposal in your area that will affect you, you have the right to object to it.



The first step in objecting to a planning application is when the local authorities notify those neighbours who will be affected by the development. To object, you will need to submit an objection comment to the application. There will often be a comments section on the local authority’s website where you can do this. The local authority will request comments within a time limit.



Our experienced team can evaluate the planning application and see whether there are grounds to object. By using us, we can make a case for challenging the proposed development. This includes highlighting where mistakes or lack of information has occurred.
