Planning can be a very subjective issue. If your neighbour submits a planning application to the County Council then you should examine it. Do not depend on another neighbour or the Residents’ Association to do that for you. What concerns you personally may not interest other residents. If possible, it is advisable to meet with the applicant before they submit an application and iron out any concerns in advance. If some aspect of the application concerns you then put your concerns in writing to the Planning Department in DLR County Council.

Roebuck Residents’ Association will only become involved if the application involves material change to the streetscape or the environment.

We will also review requests from a group of residents but cannot become involved when there are conflicting concerns from local residents.
