The development application notification letter you received from the council (or other authority) will tell you where and how you can view the plans. You can ask an officer to explain the plans to you. Ask plenty of questions to make sure you understand the proposed development and how it will impact your property.
If you’re concerned about the application, you can send an objection letter to the council or other authority.
The objection letter must:
1. Be in writing
2. Be sent to the appropriate council or authority
3. Identify you and the address of your property.
4. Be sent within the timeframe set out in the notification (usually 14 days)
However, writing an objection letter can be a difficult task. You may worry that you don’t know how to write it and you may feel stressed at trying to make sense of all the plans and reports.
