What the Planning Officer dealing with your application will do?
- The Council will inform your neighbours and Trafford Councillors by letter and, depending on the nature of your application, consult other organisations (e.g. the Highway Authority) and inform the wider community by posting site notices and press advertisements. They will have 21 or 28 days to comment
- The Planning officer will inspect the application site to evaluate the proposal
- The Planning officer may negotiate amendments to the proposal with your agent if you have one
- If amendments are needed and are significant in scale, the Council will write to your neighbours again and give them a further 10 days to view the plans and make further comments. If they don't write again, their original letter(s) will still be considered, but in the light of the amendments
- The Planning officer will prepare a report taking account of comments made by consultees, you (or your agent) and neighbours, and in consultation with senior planning officers. This report will usually be prepared 4 to 8 weeks after the Council first acknowledged your application
