You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

Planning - consultation

Service Outline

When a planning application is received, the council makes it openly available for members of the public to comment on it.

We give it publicity in a number of different ways:

  • by listing all applications received on the planning register on the website
  • by sending a neighbour consultation letter to the occupiers of those properties immediately adjoining the application site and others who are felt may be directly affected by the development
  • by publishing a notice in the local press or Southwark News
  • by the display of notices on or near to the application site

You do not need to receive a consultation letter from us before you can comment on an application.
