Representation Summary:

I feel that Pre planning advice is valuable for both parties, but only if the advice given is consistent with the lead planning officers view and the planning rules. It is pointless if having taken the advice, the application is then refused.

Respondent: Sworders (on Behalf Of Mr And Mrs I P Crane)

Representation Summary:

Inclusion of a statement to confirm that the council will approach decision-taking in a positive way and work proactively with applicants to seek solutions, in accordance with paragraph 186 and 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

LPA's are required by law to include on decision notices a statement explaining how, in dealing with the application, the local planning authority have worked with the applicant in a positive and proactive manner based on seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to dealing with a planning application. It follows that the SCI should also contain this commitment.

Representation Summary:

The period of response to planning applications is insufficient and should be extended.
My Parish Council, meeting monthly, has received a planning application a few days after their meeting and a response date before the next meeting. Clealy inadequate time or possibly late delivery of the notice itself.
In other applications, the quality of submission has been woefully inadequate, drawings without dimensions or scale, re-submissions 180 degrees out from the initial one. work to trees without showing which tree etc.
HDC has never responded to questions re the above and appears lacking in a standard that all applications must achieve.

Lack of feedback to parish council comments unless application goes to committee.

Representation Summary:

This seems to be a withdrawal of notification in a number of cases that were previously notifiable. With the advent of Neighbourhood Plans it is important that all applications are notified to Parish Councils as was previously the case.

Representation Summary:

Previously, as recently as last year Parish Councils were informed that requests for extension to deadlines for comments were possible if Parishes needed more time - this does not allow for that opportunity and may have some implications for Parishes ability to respond within the time allowed.

Again online communication is not inclusive of all and places a number of people at a disadvantage.

para 9.6 does not mention notification to parish councils - does this mean they will no longer be notified for ordinary planning applications?

Representation Summary:

9.7 The time period should be extended when it covers Statutory Holiday or local employment shut-down periods

9.8 All amendments should be consulted on; what is minor to the Case Officer may be important to the local community

9.9 and 9.16, The Public Access system for viewing planning applications and their status must be kept up to date

Respondent: Dr Suzanne Imber

Representation Summary:

A certificate of lawful use is simply a means by which to circumvent planning regulation. The council has a responsibility to seek evidence contradicting that provided by the applicant, and in doing so, must consult all local residents. Rather than remove entirely the responsibility of the council to consult only the nearest neighbours, the consultation should be extended beyond just the adjacent properties. This would at least allow local residents to be aware of the application and able to put their evidence to the council.

Respondent: THURNBY AND BUSHBY Parish Council

Representation Summary:

It is crucial that Ward Councillors are involved in the establishment of s106 agreements, prior to applications being put forward for consideration, in order to ensure that the agreement meets the needs of the community.

Paragraph 9.7 - the timing of notification of planning applications to Parish Councils, setting of agendas and dates of meetings occasionally results in the necessity for PCs to request extensions on the period for consultation. HDC officers have previously been flexible in accommodating requests and it is hoped that this can continue.

Representation Summary:

An additional paragraph is required covering late submissions. There is a trend for important information to be presented to the Planning Committee as a late submission. This is often too late for proper consideration by the Councillors and certainly too late for local people to comment on it. We suggest that the deadline for late submissions should be at least 7 days before the Planning Committee meeting date.
