How to comment on an application

All comments submitted through the Public Access System are published instantly and become formal parts of the application documentation which can be viewed by the public straight away. 

While every effort is made to remove contact information such as email addresses, telephone numbers and signatures it is advisable not to include any information you don’t wish to be made public.

The SDNPA has adopted a protocol for dealing with any representations that are alleged to contain inappropriate content. If you consider that a representation is inappropriate please contact the relevant planning office.

Alternatively you can send comments to us by post addressed to SDNPA, South Downs Centre, North Street, Midhurst, West Sussex, GU29 9DH or to planning@southdowns.gov.uk

As a result of unprecedented staff absence due to illness we are unfortunately experiencing delays in processing the planning caseload.

We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused by your comments not appearing online in the normal timeframe, but please be assured that case officers are receiving all information before making any recommendations or decisions.


" The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness. "
