The planning application process

2) Consultation and publicity

Consultations are sent to various bodies to obtain their expert view.

Advertisements, where required, are placed in the appropriate local paper and on site and indicate how to view plans and how to comment on them, usually 21 days from the date of publishing. The need for advertisement in the press and on site is a requirement of legislation, and, are often supplemented by Council's individual policies and procedures.
