What happens to comments:
Your comments will be read by the Case Officer. Unfortunately we cannot reply to your comments.
We also consult your local Councillor, other Council departments and other organisations as appropriate - such as Town and Parish Councils, ecological advisers, conservation organisations, the Environment Agency, etc.
The job of our planning staff and/or the Committee is to balance the impacts against all the other considerations - including planning policies and the reasonable expectations of the applicant.
