Objecting to planning applications

Posted on the 23rd July 2020

Is there is an intensive farm looking to set up in your local area? We have put together a guide to help you make an objection.

As a UK resident, you have the power to influence planning decisions in your local area by submitting an objection to the planning team at your local authority. Sometimes it is possible to object to plans in other areas, it is best to check with the planning team before taking the time to write an objection.

Planning objections have greater weight when individual letters and emails are submitted, rather than simply signing a petition. Petitions are good to show a strength of feeling against a proposal but do not carry so much weight in the decision process.

Please visit our guide which will help you determine what are the most important items to include in your letter or email.
