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 wish to submit a petition it will be considered provided that:
- each page of the petition is headed with the aim of the petition
- the names and addresses of those signing are provided and are legible
- the comments are material in planning terms and clearly stated.
Please note that duplicates of a letter (the same layout and the same comments) may also be acknowledged as a petition.
