Transparency and privacy

All comments and written representations made on an application are open to public inspection. They will also be published on this website and this will include your name and address. Your signature, telephone number and email address will be redacted. Please read our guidance on letters of representation for planning before submitting your comments.

The statutory period for consultation is 21 days from receipt of the planning application. If you do not comment within the statutory 21 day period there will be no potential to address the planning committee directly should the application be reported to them for decision. If you experience any problems with the website and urgently wish to submit a comment, please email:

Please note that Herefordshire Council accepts no responsibility or liability for the comments received and reserves the right to withdraw or redact comments from public inspection not of a valid planning nature at any time. Representations received after the relevant statutory time limit will only be considered if they raise material planning matters and will affect your opportunity for public speaking in the event that the application is considered by the Planning Committee. It is important therefore that you comply with the stated time limits. Part 5, section 6 of the council's constitution contains the Planning Code which provides guidance for members and officers.
