Frequently Asked Questions (We will update this periodically)


We are sometimes sent requests for help related to local planning issues: for example a development in a local community, which some members of the community intend to oppose.

A good first place to look for help is the national FoE website, which has a lot of information and various information boards that can provide detailed knowledge of planning processes, although they won’t know the specific details of your case. Click here for more information.

As a local group we will try to help if we can, but we are not planning experts and, as a group of volunteers, we have very limited time. So please feel free to contact us, but we are unlikely to be able to help if we are just sent a link to planning documents. You are welcome to come and talk at one of our group meetings as well.
