Planning applications disclaimer

Members of the public may inspect copies of the application, the plans, and other documents submitted, during normal office hours at Allerdale House, Workington or via our online planning applications search. Any representations must be sent in writing to the Head of Development Services, Allerdale House, Workington, CA14 3YJ or submitted via our website within 21 days from the date of consultation.

All comments and representations are made available for public inspection under the provisions of the Access to Information Act 1986. This means that all correspondence including the names and addresses of those making representations appear on the Council’s website. Avoid any details that could compromise your security such as dates or times when you will not be at home.

Any correspondence you do not wish to have included in the public register must be clearly marked “not for disclosure”. Letters marked in this way will not be made available to the public, but will also not be available for consideration by the Council’s Development Panel.

Anonymous comments will not be considered.

If we receive comments about a planning application that are considered to be defamatory to another person, these remarks will not be included in any reports or published on the Council’s website. This is because publishing a defamatory statement may constitute a libel. Unless the author arranges to remove it, the original paper version showing the comments will remain on our public file leaving the writer at risk of an action for libel.

This is not a live system, comments and representations made relating to an application will not automatically be uploaded to the website on submission.
