Standard Objection Emails

Writing your own objection letter and sending it in yourself has the greatest impact and we therefore strongly encourage people to take a little extra time and to do this. You can do this here.

If that is not possible, you can alternatively send a standard pre-prepared letter(s) by following the instructions below.

Object NOW!

Please fill in the simple form below. This will send standard letters in your name objecting to the planning application AND to the Secretary of State requesting a call in*

If you've already objected to the planning application DON'T WORRY and PLEASE CARRY ON as you can skip this bit and just send the important "call in request" letter to the Secretary of State.

* Further Information

The objection letter process above will do two things:

1) Email our standard planning objection letter in your name with the details you enter to Gloucestershire County Council's Planning Department. A copy will also be sent to the members of the County Council's Planning Committee.

2) Email our standard letter to Secretary of State, Eric Pickles, requesting that the planning application be "called in" and thereby take the decision out of the County Council's hands - unfotunately they cannot be trusted to make the decision objectively.

Sending a standard letter by Post instead

If you prefer to send your planning objection by post you can download a copy of the letter here, fill in your details and send it to:

The Planning Unit

Environment & Community Directorate

Gloucestershire County Council

Shire Hall, Gloucester


To send in the call-in letter by post, copy and print out the letter text available here.

Your details will only be used as described on this page and will not be shared with any other 3rd parties.
