A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views.

 

“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive,” the spokesperson said.

 

“This feedback is taken into consideration as part of the assessment.

 

“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
