All the paperwork which planning applications attract is made available online via the Borough Council of Wellingborough's website.
You can view all the documents for any planning application, but first you need to find it. If you want to submit an objection letter online, you can do that once you've found it.
So you need to search for the application first.
The Borough Council of Wellingborough provides a search facility for planning applications. Follow the steps given below.
To use the search facility, follow these steps:
To post an objection, click the Make a Public Comment button located above the row of tabs, and fill in the form which then appears.
Any objection you post to the Borough Council of Wellingborough's planning website before the Planning Inspectorate's window for representations closes will automatically be forwarded to the Inspectorate. If you want to post directly to the Inspectorate's website, follow these steps:
It's no longer necessary to object to the three Barwood applications since each of them has now been the subject of a public inquiry and has been dismissed. For the same reason, it is no longer necessary to object to the Station Road application.
We continue to show their Wellingborough Borough Council reference numbers here so that you can read their documentation.
WP/14/00298/OUT is the reference number for the Station Road application, WP/15/00281/OUT is the reference number for Barwood's third application, WP/2013/0590 is the reference number for the second Barwood application, and WP/2012/0165 is the reference number for the first one.
Many documents nowadays come in portable document format and to view and print their content requires a PDF reader. If you haven't got one, you can download a free copy of Adobe Reader by clicking this icon:
The ensuing website page will provide the version appropriate for your platform if one is available. Be sure to untick the optional offers unless you want them.
Android mobile phones are covered, but not iPhones or Windows Phones. If you have an iPhone or a Windows Phone (such as a Nokia Lumia), you'll find a suitable PDF reader in your mobile phone's app store.
With no schemes presently in play, there's nothing to object to. Here, for interest, are some past objection letters.
These letters were provided for use in objecting to the Little Irchester planning application, third Barwood planning application and the Station Road planning application. Feel free to modify them by, for example, changing the wording or the order of the bullet points.
The editable version of each letter is in Rich Text Format, which most word processors support.
If you are happy to send a letter as it stands, use its PDF file. If you haven't already got a PDF reader, follow the instructions at To get a PDF reader … The PDF reader will provide printing facilities.

The Borough Council of Wellingborough continues to accept objection letters until noon on the day of the meeting at which the Planning Committee considers the application. Do not be concerned, therefore, if the published deadline has passed. It is a statutory requirement to state such a deadline, but it is treated as a formality.
Nevertheless, if you intend to object, it's a good idea to send your letter now so that you don't forget to do it.
Alternatively, you can object online. See TO USE THE SEARCH FACILITY for instructions on how to find the planning application and post your objection.
You'll need a PDF reader for this. If you haven't already got one, follow the instructions at To get a PDF reader …
