Commenting on a planning application

Consultation notifications

Applications near you

You will usually be made aware of an application by a letter from us because you live in or occupy premises close to the application site and we consider that you might be affected by the development.

You will have 21 days in which to comment. We also publicise certain applications on site or in the local newspaper, the Wandsworth Guardian.

However, it doesn't matter how you got to hear about a proposal, anyone can submit comments to us.  We strongly recommend that you look at an application before commenting on it.

Applications in an area of your choice

We offer a service which allows you to be notified of new planning applications in your chosen area of Wandsworth. If you are likely to be affected by a proposal you can expect to be consulted by us without needing to do anything. Find out how you can register.

Outcomes of applications

It is not always possible to respond individually to comments, however the outcome of the application and all associated application documents can be viewed by going to the Planning homepage. The easiest way to access the application documents is to enter the application number only, using the Planning quick search. To view the details of the application, click ‘View Associated Application Documents & Make Online Comments for Live Applications’.
