There are many issued to consider when dealing with a planning application.

Over the past week I have received enquiries from residents asking on what grounds they can object to a planning application.

If you would like to object to a planning application the following are issues which “may” be considered:

Planning history of the site.

Overshadowing.

Overlooking and loss of privacy.

Adequate parking and servicing.

Overbearing nature of proposal.

Loss of trees.

Loss of ecological habitats.

Archaeology.

Contamination by a previous use.

Effect on listed building(s) and conservation areas.

Access and highways.

Traffic generation.

Noise and disturbance.

Disturbance from smells.

Public visual amenity.

Flood risk.

Planning gain.
