Register for a planning public access portal account to save specific searches of interest to you such as parish, ward or post code and track specific applications online. Please note you do not need to register on the Public Access portal in order to make comments on planning applications. All comments submitted on the portal are put into the public realm. If we receive comments about a planning application that are considered to be defamatory to another person, these remarks will not be included in any reports or published on the Council’s website. This is because publishing a defamatory statement may constitute a libel. Depending upon circumstances, such comments may be redacted or not published.
