Notice of Application for Planning Permission

I give notice that an application for planning permission has been submitted by Southend United Football Club at teh above address. A description of the proposed development is also summarised and you are advised to inspect the plans.

Members of the public may inspect copies of the application, plans and any other documents submitted with it at the Customer Contact Centre, Ground Floor, Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, on weekdays between 8.45am and 5.00pm. Plans and application informationare also available to view via the PublicAccess for Planning service within the Council website at www.southend.gov.uk.

Anyone wishing to make representations about this application should write to me by 18th August 2009. All letters of representation will be open to the public (and the applicant) and copies may be made available to them. In the event of an appeal they will be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate. Any written representation received in response to this notice will be fully considered although only those representations relating to the planning merits of the proposed development may influence the decision. The Council would like you to respond to this notice even if you have no objection to the application; however, you are advised that it is not possible to acknowledge representations, to renotify where plans are amended or to enter into detailed correspondence about the application. It may be that other occupiers/owners of your property or neighbours are unaware of the proposal so please show them this notice that I may have their comments. Anyone who makes a representation to me about the application will be informed of the Council's decision.

Some applicants, particularly those relating to major or controversial proposals, are decided at the Council's Development Control Committee where public speaking on planning applications is allowed. You may wish to discuss the process with your Ward Councillor.

Please quote the above Application Number in all correspondence. If you have any queries about the content of this notice please contact the case officer named above who will be pleased to assist.
