PLANNING CONSULTATION – GUIDANCE NOTES
Important Notes
Further general information about planning procedures and policies in order to help you respond to an application notification is available on Sevenoaks District Council website www.sevenoaks.gov.uk
In addition more detailed information about individual applications and their progress to a decision is available from the public access section of the website.

Planning applications – having your say

Each application Sevenoaks District Council receive is important to the people who make it and also those it may affect. We want you to be involved in the planning process. We promise to consider all comments carefully before making a decision. If an application is referred to the Committee for a decision it may be necessary to summarise your comments.

Please remember that any comments made are treated as a public document and can be made generally available.

Material planning considerations
In considering an application we have a statutory duty to have regard to the planning policies it has adopted, set out in our Local Plan(s) and any material considerations.

The most common material considerations include the following, although the list is not exhaustive.

• Loss of light
• Noise, smells and disturbance resulting from use
• Overshadowing
• Loss of trees
• Overlooking/loss of privacy
• Design, appearance and materials
• Visual amenity (but loss of private view is not material)
• Effect on listed building and conservation area
• Adequacy of parking
• Layout and density of buildings
• Traffic generation/highway safety

Matters which we cannot normally take into consideration
These include:
• Matters controlled under building regulations or other non-planning laws e.g. structural stability, etc.
• Private issues between neighbours e.g. land/boundary disputes, damage to property, private rights of way, covenants etc.
• Loss of value of property
• Problems associated with the construction period of any works e.g. hours of work, noise, dust, construction vehicles etc.

Hope this guide will help you give your views in an effective way
