Comment on a planning application
Petitions on a planning application
Generally petitions are not given much weight in the consideration of a planning application or appeal. It is often better for individuals to write a letter explaining their own views.
If you do still wish to submit a petition it must include:
- the aim of the petition at the top of each page
- legible names and addresses of those signing
- clearly stated comments that are material in planning terms.
Duplicates of a letter (the same layout and the same comments) may also be acknowledged as a petition.
