Publicity

All planning applications must be publicised by the Local Planning Authority, either by: 
  • Site Notice, or 
  • Notification to neighbours, or 
  • For major developments, an advertisement in a local newspaper
The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure (England)) Order 2015 specifies which combination of the above should be used. The Local Planning Authority determines the appropriate level of consultation reflecting the scale and likely impact of the development.

Consultation

Before granting planning permission, the Local Planning Authority must consult certain statutory consultees, set out by the Order, and must notify the relevant Parish Council. They must wait at least 21 days before determining the application.

Where a resident is consulted, the Ward Councillors are also consulted. It is important that reasons are given for support or opposition so that due weight can be given to them.

The consultation letters explain that it is assumed that a consultee does not wish to make any representation if no reply is received within 21 days. If a request for more time is received, this is invariably granted.

Under the Access to Information Act most replies are open to public inspection. Only exempt matters (allegations of a breach of planning law, personal or financial circumstances etc.) can be excluded from the public gaze.

All the replies received, together with any unsolicited responses, are taken into account before a decision is reached. It is not usually possible to respond to consultation replies until after the decision had been reached, although it quite often happens that additional information is sought, for example from the applicant, as a result of consultation replies.
