Make a comment online

Once you have searched for the application and you want to submit comments, you will need to register for an account. If you previously had an account this will no longer work.

If you would like to make a comment and are unable to view the documents, please contact the case officer (if known) or planning.admin@oldham.gov.uk

They will be able to advise whether there is an opportunity to extend the time available for you to submit comments.

Comments submitted will now be available to view in the search facility. Please not include any personal information, such as your name, address, or contact details, in the comments section of an application as this will be made public.  Please note that each comments submitted can be up to a maximum of 5000 characters. 

Your name and address, which are required in other sections of the online comments page will not be publicised, but cannot be treated as confidential and will be available for public inspection upon request.
