Development of the wrong type in the wrong place can have negative impacts on local residents and businesses. Invalid planning objections can often weaken your case, and at Cedar Planning we focus on ensuring that all objections are focused, well-researched and based on facts and evidence. 

At Cedar Planning we have vast experience in guiding worried residents and business owners through planning objections. This includes objections to planning applications, planning appeals and local plan representations. With our expertise and dedication, we will put forward the best case for refusing the application and ensure that your voice is heard. We often work to tight deadlines for our clients to ensure that planning objections are submitted on-time. Yet we still take the time to ensure that effective engagement with our clients and that our objections are accurate and effective.

We produce planning objections for our clients in a clear and transparent way. This will ensure that you have the opportunity to include any factors that are particularly relevant to you. This could be the impact on local roads or schools, or a negative impact on your business. Common examples of objections to planning applications include:

  • Development is in an unsustainable location;

  • Loss of light, overshadowing or privacy;

  • Conflict with local or national planning policies;

  • Design and appearance of the proposal;

  • Impact on biodiversity, including the loss of trees;

  • Traffic generation;

  • Lack of infrastructure capacity, such as doctors or schools;

  • Impact on heritage assets such as listed buildings and conservation areas.

We ensure that each and every planning objection is well-researched and based on the relevant planning considerations. This includes through research of the relevant planning policies and documents submitted by the applicant, to identify where any weaknesses may lie. We handle all documentation and submissions on your behalf, saving you time and effort.
