Commenting on a planning application

​​If you feel you wish to object to an application, provide support, or simply draw the planning officers’ attention to certain details, you can do so by submitting comments through the on-line register.

On-line planning register

How long have I got to submit my comments?

You should submit your comments within 21 days of either the application being advertised in the Jersey Evening Post or the date on the site notice. We will consider comments received after the 21 days if the application has not already been determined.

So find out how your comments will be treated    

What happens to my comments?

Your comment will be posted to the on-line register, alongside other documents that relate to the planning application.  Your personal information (address, telephone number, email address, etc) will be blanked out.  Further information on how your comments will be treated can be found in Practice Note 15. 

Making comments on a planning application - SPG practice note 15

What we consider when dealing with an application

We can only consider planning matters in dealing with an application, such as:

  • planning policies
  • impact on the character of the area 
  • the design and character of a proposed building 
  • potential for noise and disturbance 
  • potential for significant loss of light and overbearing impact 
  • potential for loss of privacy 
  • traffic generation and road safety 
  • car parking

We cannot take into account:

  • loss of private views
  • effects on property values 
  • personal disagreements 
  • boundary disputes, covenants or other private property restrictions 

Comments that contain statements relating to enforcement or compliance matters or contain excessive personal information, or defamatory or libellous statements may be returned to you. This information can’t be considered when assessing the planning application and we can refuse to accept comments of this nature.
