Pride of Waltham Forest awards
Celebrate the best of our borough and nominate your local hero for our Pride of Waltham Forest awards.
We must publicise certain types of planning applications and other related consents by putting up a site notice for at least 21 days.
The notice must be placed on or near the land the application relates to, and be clearly visible. This can be in the window of the property if it can be seen from the street. Any external notices, on a lamp post or fence for example, should be laminated or inside clear plastic.
We also send neighbouring residents consultation letters by post.
We may also ask external organisations such as the Environment Agency and Transport for London for their views on a development. If the site is near the boundary with another London borough, we may also consult that borough.
Some applications may not follow all of the methods above. This will depend on the type of application submitted and the development proposal. For more information, read the Statement of Community Involvement (PDF)
Anyone can comment on a planning application. Tin find out more, see how to comment on a planning application.
