Objections to planning proposals should be based on material planning considerations. If you are not sure about the reasons that you might give, then a guidance leaflet is available below to provide you with some advice.

You should be aware that all letters received from consultees are available for public inspection via the Rochford website.  Any comments you make will be fully considered, although only comments relating to the planning merits of the proposal may influence the decision.
