Planning Applications

Essential Works

Due to an essential upgrade, Public Access will not be available on Friday 13th May and Monday 16th until Wednesday 18th May.  Please note you will not be able to submit comments online during this time however comments can still be emailed to development.control@surreyheath.gov.uk. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Resourcing 

This is to inform you, due to ongoing resourcing issues within Development Management, processing times of planning applications may take longer than usual to determine.  We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but please be assured that we are trying our best to resolve the resourcing issues to enable the department to determine planning applications within the statutory time frames. 

(You will need the planning application number. If you don't have it, please use the search above first and make a note of the number) 

Publishing your personal details

Under the Town and Country Planning Act planning applications and any written comments you make about an application, by law, must be placed on the public file. This means that:

  • Your comments, and your name and address will form part of the planning application documents;
  • Anonymous and 'in confidence' comments will not be considered;
  • Your comments will be published on our website including your name and address;
  • We will remove any signature, email address and telephone number before publishing; and,
  • It may be possible for your name and address to appear in search results on Google, Yahoo and other internet browsers/search engines (of which the Council has no control over)


Exception

We will consider any special circumstance of making personal details sensitive, for example, keeping confidential the address of a person who is the subject of harassment. If you feel that your comment should be kept confidential please email development.control@surreyheath.gov.uk before submitting an online form as online forms are automatically published to the website before redactions can be made, alternatively you can email the Councils Data Protection Department at data.protection@surreyheath.gov.uk.
