What to consider when commenting

Remember that only certain issues can be taken into account. These include the following:

  • the appearance and character of a new building
  • an increase in noise and disturbance, such as from an increase in traffic
  • the safety of new roads, accesses and parking for road users and pedestrians
  • any effect the new building may have on employment or the local economy
  • any changes to public services
  • how the new building may affect the landscape or conservation
  • neighbours losing light or privacy

We cannot take into account:

  • personal circumstances of the applicant
  • the fact that development may have already begun
  • competition between firms
  • moral arguments
  • loss of a view from a private property
  • fears about the loss of property value
  • the fact that the applicant does not own the land
  • matters covered by leases or covenants
