The Planning Process

Planning Applications are submitted to the Local Authority for determination. Once the Local Authority has accepted the application, there is a 21 day consultation period in which you must register your objections to the application. The Local Authority is not obliged to consider comments that are received out of this period.

Weekly Planning Applications Register

A list of planning applications that have been registered for the Borough are available to view on a weekly basis.

A Guide To Having Your Say On Planning Applications

Anyone can send in representations on Planning Applications – it doesn’t matter whether you have received a letter from ESBC, seen the application advertised by way of a site notice or press notice, or seen the application on ESBC website, or just been told of an application by a neighbour. Your comments have to be made in writing, either by letter or by E-mail, (in the case of the latter your name and contact address must be included) and have to be received before the application is determined, either by officer (delegated powers) or by the Council’s Planning Applications Committee. You can find out the last date for receipt of comments and whether an application is likely to go to Committee by contacting the relevant planning officer.
