Hi, There has been a recent planning application in our area and I have noticed a couple of errors in the application form I oppose the application on many grounds. What is the best way to use these errors. They are:Item 5 on the application form Pre-Application advice clearly states that no assistance or pre-application advice has been sought from the local authority. The supporting documentation Design & Access Statement clearly states:9.1 Main Site Access & HighwaysVarious access arrangements were considered during the designprocess. The proposed layout incorporates the chosen design asdetailed by SC, which has been discussed in detail with theLocal Authority.Item 6 on the application Pedestrian and vehicle access roads and right of wayThe applicant is required if they tick yes to any of the questions within this section to state reference details to the plans and drawings. No reference details have been provided.Thanks Nick

You can draw these to the attention of the planning committee, but they will simply ask for the application to be rectified. It wont make them refuse it on those grounds on the basis of those facts alone.
Discussing something and choosing in conjunction with isnt necessarily taking advice but what they say actually helps them in their application. Sorry.
You can only object if it has serious impact on your own property, not simply because you dont like it or want it.
If it goes to appeal and you dont voice objections in person at appeal, they are likely to be discounted.
Well done for spotting the errors but in my opinion, there is not sufficent for the council to turn it down.
Can I help further?
