Council tenants, leaseholders, and residents living in sheltered accommodation can help to design, monitor and review services in their community through a range of channels. These include opportunities to get involved in groups or panels on a regular basis, or more informally through ‘one off’ chances to submit views or comments.
The Council welcomes comments on planning applications it has received. You can support or object to any planning application in Southampton within 21 days of its submission. Comments will be taken into account in determining an application.
