  • Government advice as set out in the National Planning Policy Guidance and associated advice available through the The National Planning Portal.
  • Substantial damage to the amenities of residents caused by noise, disturbance, smell, loss of light, or overlooking.
  • The visual impact of the development - what it will look like.
  • Highway safety and traffic generation, including parking.
  • The existing use of the site, or any other planning permissions already granted for the site.
