Notification of Planning Applications

Who is notified of a new application?


When a new application is submitted we notify the local parish council and certain third party organisations such as English Heritage, Lancashire County Council and the Environment Agency among others.  These are our statutory consultees and they are invited to give their comments. 

We also notify the neighbours that we feel may be affected by the development.  The neighbours we choose to notify depends upon the size and type of the development

New applications are also published on our weekly list. 

If you have not been notified of an application you wish to object to you can still submit your views to us.  Anyone can comment on any current application, there is no need to wait for a letter to arrive.
