the request must state if they wish to speak in support or in opposition to a planning application
requests must be accompanied with a legible written representation of no longer than two sides of an A4 page. This can be written or typically typed in a font such as Arial (minimum size 10). It should summarise the points to be addressed and provide supplementary information (e.g. photographs or otherwise) in support of their case
a contact number and/or email address must be provided to allow individuals to be invited to/participate in meetings either in person or remotely through online access
