Query regarding the status of a local authority that has missed the deadline to register as an interested party
Relevant Representations closed 12 February 2015 and as the deadline has now passed you cannot register through the relevant representations process.
As a neighbouring Local Authority you are not automatically registered as an interested party in the process. However, as a statutory consultee you may write to the Examining Authority and request to become an interested party for this application. You will receive an invitation to the Preliminary Meeting in due course and I have attached Advice Notes which may be of use:
Advice note one: Local impact reports
How the process works
Advice note 8.4: Influencing how an application will be examined ? the Preliminary Meeting
Advice note 8.5: Participating in the examination
You may also find the following DCLG Guidance document of use: Planning Act 2008: examination of applications for development consent
You may wish to submit a Local Impact Report and if so, should prioritise preparation of this irrespective of whether the local authority considers the development would have a positive or negative impact on your area. You may also submit on behalf of your local authority a separate written representation if you wish to express a particular view on whether the application should be granted. Deadlines for these documents will be set out in the Rule 8 letter, which will be issued as soon as practicable following the Preliminary Meeting and the letter will also outline key dates for the Examination.
