Viewing of neighbour/business comments online

We understand that it is sometimes useful to view comments made on applications but, unfortunately, due to the volume of comments we receive, we cannot provide this as a general service.
If copies of the comments are required, please request this in writing to [email protected]. Please make sure you quote the application number and site address so that we can find the correct application.
Comments will be redacted before being provided. Requests will be dealt with within 20 working days. However, should there be a high volume of comments on the requested application, then a bespoke timescale to respond will be given.
