We will carry out a 28 day consultation where local residents and businesses may support or object to the application. If objections are received a committee will meet to make a decision on whether to grant the consent.

We may attach conditions to any consent to prevent:

  • obstruction to the street or danger to persons using it
  • nuisance or annoyance whether to persons using the street or otherwise
