Letters of support

Sustainable Charlbury recognised that letters of support would be important in helping to ensure the success of the planning application for their community owned solar farm. They appealed to their supporters via their mailing list to write letters to their local planning authority. However, they were wary that lots of identical letters would not be as helpful as different letters with a variety of points, so rather than setting out the points for people to make, they invited people to use their own ideas, and circulated a link to the Community Engagement Report which they submitted with their planning application for inspiration. They made the process easier for people by setting out who and where letters should be addressed to, as well as the planning reference number to quote.
