Planning Applications and Photographs

Applicants are normally expected to submit photographs in support of their application.  These are made available on our website for public inspection.  In addition, the case officer will take photographs when visiting the site.  Neighbours sometimes feel that these photographs don’t fully represent the situation.   For instance, depending on the time of the year, photos that show trees and hedges in leaf do not show what a development site would look like in the winter.

The case officer will accept such photos from neighbours and put them on our website.  Depending on what they show, these would then be used as part of the evidence base.  Display of these photos on our website does not imply that the Council endorses a particular opinion.

Please note that any photographs containing sensitive views of other people’s land and property could cause offence and should be avoided. We could refuse to display photographs that cause undue offence.
