Decisions on planning applications will be based mainly on the policies contained in the Development Plan.
In Bassetlaw, the Development Plan comprises the Bassetlaw Core Strategy and Development Management Policies DPD, supported by Supplementary Planning Documents, and any adopted Neighbourhood Plans in the district.
Central Government policies in the form of the National Planning Policy Framework and National Planning Policy Guidance also inform our decision-making.
Should you wish to comment on a current planning application, the following lists shows other considerations that will and will not normally be taken into account when considering a planning application:
|What is normally taken into account?||What is not normally taken into account?|
The above lists are by no means exhaustive but give an overview of the types of issues that would normally or not normally be considered.
Large scale local support or opposition, usually in the form of petitions and duplicated letters, is not in itself a valid reason for either granting or refusing an planning application. Only the relevant issues contained in comments received will be considered together with the Relevant Policies.
