The documentation for planning applications and any comments received in response to them, whether objections or supporting statements, must be made available for public inspection, in accordance with the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985. Provision is made within the Data Protection Legislation for publishing such information. This means that we cannot treat such documentation or representations as confidential.
Documents submitted, and any comments made, will form part of the background documentation to the planning application, and are evidential information for this legal process. In accordance with the requirements of The Environmental Information Regulations 2004, we publish planning applications and supporting documents on the website as well as making these available for inspection in hard copy. You should be aware that address details form part of the application documentation and will therefore be available online.
The material on this website does not necessarily represent the full extent of information available about planning applications, or necessarily all the information retained on the Statutory Planning Register, held by us, the Planning Authority. Certain information may be withheld from internet publication. Access to the full content of planning applications will continue to be available at the Council offices.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the information provided on this website is correct and accurate, we cannot accept any liability or responsibility should you rely on the information provided and later find it to have been inaccurate.
