Development Process

Involve your Neighbours

Talk to your neighbours about your plans and consider their needs before preparing a final plan. You need to consider how your proposal will affect them; for example, are there any issues of buildings overlooking or overshadowing other properties?

Council may notify your neighbours, by letter, about your proposal. If neighbours have concerns about the proposal it could delay processing while changes are discussed, or lead to the refusal of your application. A co-operative approach in the early stages will help avoid this problem.
