TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990

 

THIS FORM SHOULD BE COMPLETED (IN ADDITION TO THE MAIN APPLICATION FORM) FOR MINERAL WORKING, WASTE TREATMENT OR DISPOSAL AND ASSOCIATED DEVELOPMENT FOR PROPOSALS INVOLVING MINERAL EXPLORATION (EXCLUDING OIL OR GAS) AND REQUIRING PLANNING PERMISSION. PLEASE READ THE ACCOMPANYING GUIDANCE NOTES AT THE END OF THIS ANNEXE BEFORE COMPLETING THESE QUESTIONS.
Planning is a statutory function and any information is held on the lawful basis of public task (in accordance with the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended, related orders and regulations). If you have submitted a planning application to Surrey County Council or made a comment on a planning application, your name, address and contact details will be saved in our files, electronic and paper. We do this so we can notify you of amendments to the proposal, the outcome of the application, if an appeal is lodged against the application, and subsequent applications in respect of the site. This information will be retained indefinitely as part of the background information on which the planning decision has been based. Additionally, all submissions will be sent to the relevant Borough or District Council to be placed on the Planning Register as this is their responsibility. In the event of an appeal or a 'call-in' by the Secretary of State, your submissions may be copied to the Planning Inspectorate or the National Planning Casework Unit.
