How to Write a Good Objection to the Masterplan and Planning Application
When writing an objection letter to a planning application or building development, there are a few things to avoid in order to make your letter as effective as possible. Here are some tips:
- Avoid using emotive language or making personal attacks. Instead, focus on the facts and present a clear, logical argument for your objection.
- Avoid making vague or general statements. Instead, provide specific examples and evidence to support your objections.
- Avoid repeating the same points multiple times. Instead, focus on presenting a range of different objections to the development.
- Avoid making unrealistic demands or requesting impossible changes to the development. Instead, focus on practical solutions that could address your concerns.
- Avoid including irrelevant information or information that is not directly related to the development. This can make your letter appear unfocused and less credible.
N.B. The forum has given you some examples of concerns they have that you may also want to base your objection on and these can be found on this website. They include concerns for the development North, Central and South of Edenfield as well as overarching concerns for the proposed Masterplan and Taylor Wimpey Planning Application. It is important that you raise the concerns as to how they affect you. You may also have concerns of your own and it is important you raise these also.
Overall, the key is to present a clear, well-reasoned argument that is focused on the specific issues related to the development!
By avoiding these common pitfalls, you can increase the chances that your objections will be taken seriously and considered by the relevant authorities.
Ensure that you make sure that any written objections include the text below so that they are counted:
